Pisesweg Circular Route: Murau - St. Georgen/Kreischberg

Open
Leisurely hike from Murau to St. Georgen with a lovely view of the golf course. Alternatively, you can start this round trip from St. Georgen.
This charming trip can be started either from Murau or St. Georgen am Kreischberg and is also recommended for families with children. Prams are only possible on the section that uses the Murradweg cycle trail. Starting at the western end of Murau (at the Red Cross), the route initially runs on the Lärchberg on the sunny side of town before heading in the direction of St. Georgen am Kreischberg, a town often crowned the "Most Beautiful Flower Town in Styria". Cross the River Mur on the Holzeuropabrücke (bridge) to St. Lorenzen, walking away from the Kreischberg and towards the golf course. The trail now runs sedately between fields to the 18-hole golf course, which again touches on the wood theme. Set off back to Murau along the Murradweg cycle trail. Alternatively, you can travel back to Murau from St. Lorenzen by train on the Murtalbahn railway or by bus.

More information

From the Murau Red Cross, we hike approx. three kilometres on asphalt road up the Lärchberg. At the junction, we turn left and head downhill for about 500m. We then cross a meadow (caution: grazing livestock). Continue for approx. 20 minutes through a trench and come to a gravel road, where we turn downhill (approx. 1.5 km) and take the asphalt road via Edling to St. Georgen am Kreischberg. Return along the Murradweg (R2), past the golf course to Murau.
