A refreshing experience in crystal clear water

Swimming and water sports in the Murau region

The sun is shining, and the temperatures have already climbed above 25 degrees Celsius? Then it's time for a refreshing swim! In the Murau region, summer holidaymakers can choose between natural bodies of water – fresh mountain lakes or bathing lakes – and several outdoor pools.

Bathing in the region’s natural lakes

Many of the regional lakes, such as the romantic Furtnerteich or the mystical Podolerteich offer free bathing pleasure against an impressive natural backdrop. Ready for an excursion into a magnificent natural landscape combined with an invigorating dip in the cool water?

Refreshingly diverse – the bathing lakes in the Murau region

Water sports in natural surroundings: That’s what the bathing lakes in the Murau region are known for. Rent a kayak or SUP, sunbathe on the jetty, play volleyball on the lakeshore … The region’s bathing hotspots offer much more than just an opportunity to go swimming.

Outdoor pools in the Murau region

Families with children can experience an exciting day of swimming in spacious public pools with slides and bathing islands. Outside of the water, volleyball courts and ping-pong tables ensure plenty of entertainment. Those who prefer a more quiet and manageable location might want to visit one of the small, beautiful outdoor pools. Of course, the water there is of excellent quality too.

Indoor pools and thermal spas for any weather

As we know, the weather doesn’t boast summery temperatures every day – but that’s no problem! In the Murau region, the bathing fun can continue even on bad weather days.

At the indoor pool in Murau and the indoor pool of AUSZEIT Health Centre in St. Lambrecht (for adults only), holidaymakers can swim all year round and in any weather. A visit to Wildbad Einöd Health Spa or Aqualux Therme in Fohnsdorf is a wonderful and relaxing experience as well.
