 FOr summer explorers

Whether on a bike, in a pair of hiking boots, on a motorcycle or in a car, the Region Murtal has plenty to discover. 

Hiking, cycling, horseriding, swimming, golfing... There's so much to keep you busy in the Murtal in the heart of Styria during the summer months. Sport and wellbeing take centre stage.

In the Region Murtal, you can take a holiday in the slow lane or the fast lane. Relaxation and action are never far away. Unwind at the Aqualux Therme Fohnsdorf or pump up the adrenalin with a driving experience at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. Choose a tranquil cycling tour in unspoiled nature or a high-speed mountain bike adventure (or both!). What do all these experiences have in common? Pleasure and a thrill in the heart. Unforgettable panoramic views from the peaks, glass-clear mountain lakes, untouched wetlands and much more are waiting for you.

Be amazed by the unspoiled nature. 

Summer time is time for fun in the water.

play it cool

The Aqualuxtherme spa isn't the only place to offer enjoyment in refreshing waters. There are numerous outdoor pools in the Region Murtal where you can get active. Lots of slides, sports pools, lazy rivers and white water pools are waiting for you. If you're after something more natural, then why not visit one of our swimming ponds and lakes.

With its swimming pond, the Freizeitanlage Möderbrugg offers all sorts of fun, framed by its two-thousander mountains. In contrast to a sweaty hike, everything here revolves around refreshing watery fun.

The organic bathing pond in Pöls-Oberkurzheim is one of the largest in Austria. With 4,700 square metres of pure, clean water and 11,000 aquatic plants, it is a perfect place for spending a few relaxed hours on a hot summer's day. Little guests can splash about to their heart's content in the shallows, while you unwind properly on the jetty... and it's all free entry too! Work up a sweat at the skater park or beach volleyball court before jumping into the crystal-clear water.

Fun and adventure in natural water is also to be had at the Freizeitanlage Zechner leisure complex. Here you can take a pedalo from island to island, fly down the giant slide and simply soak up the good life amidst perfectly green nature.
