More summer activities in the Murau region

The Murau region delights summer holidaymakers of all ages with a diverse range of activities. The “classics” such as hiking, cycling and mountain biking are complemented by sports such as golf, fishing, or motorcycling. If you prefer something a bit more action-packed, you could give rafting, paragliding or 3D archery a try.

Fishing

It’s not just hikers and cyclists who get their money's worth in the Murau region. If you want to go fishing at the green Mur, then the Bodendorf and St. Georgen reservoirs are the places to go. On a 2.5-kilometre stretch of river, you’ll have a good chance that brown and rainbow trout will bite. Fishing maps are available at the Kreischberg information office.

An alternative: The Rottenmanner Teich is about three hectares in size and lies about seven kilometres from Murau. Fishing permits are available directly at the pond.

General regulations for fishing in the Murau region:

  • All fishing methods according to the Styrian Fisheries Act are permitted.
  • No live bait, multiple bait or insert bait may be used.
  • Barbs must be pressed on and there must be no lead under the bait.
