Cycling is a passion that we share with our visitors. Strike out across the flat valley through which the Murradweg runs, up in the mountains (ideal for mountain biking) or along the numerous side roads used mainly by racing cyclists.
Forget the hike, take a bike
In the Murtal, tranquil cycling tours in unspoiled nature alternate with speed-charged mountain bike experiences. Take a leisurely ride along the Murradweg trail and admire the beauty of the Mur river wetlands. The water babbles soothingly beside you, and fortunately the trail runs gently downhill for most of the way. Or how about planning your own individual tour using the Nimm´s Radl cycling network. This orientation and guidance system covers the entire Region Murtal like a spider's web, so you can travel comfortably from point to point, depending on your fitness levels and how the mood takes you.
As part of the "Nimms’s Radl" (Take a Bike) project, a network of cycling nodes has been set up across the entire region. As a visitor, you therefore have the opportunity to plan out as many tours as you want using the cycling node system for orientation. All over the Murtal, you'll see boards displaying your map sections, so you'll always know exactly where you are and where you can cycle to. Larger crossroads are all numbered and also marked as nodes. This system thus offers you the chance to decide your own cycling routes, flexibly and spontaneously.
The Murtal offers the ideal opportunity for a cycling holiday. One particularly well-known trail is the Murradweg. This runs along the river Mur, thus snaking through the Murtal for a while. In total, the Murradweg runs for 359 km in Austria. Stage 04 is located in the Murtal. Enjoy pedalling along this renowned trail and make the most of the chance to get to know both the Murtal and its unspoiled natural landscapes a bit better. Lots of accommodation providers and culinary establishments as well as a wide range of excursion destinations are waiting for you. In any case, it's well worth stopping for a break in the region and spending a bit of time here.
Do you want to start your Murradweg tour from the Murtal? No problem. The ÖBB (Austrian Rail) offers excellent connections for dropping you off and picking you up at the Murradweg. You can also use Bacher Reisen - this bus company enables you to transfer to the start of the cycling trail from many different start points.
The best time for cycling along the Mur is from May to October. However, you should take into account large events at the Red Bull Ring, as it is usually difficult to find accommodation at these times.
The beautiful mountain kingdoms and well-maintained routes invite you to take a wonderful mountain bike tour with idyllic views and remarkable viewing points. There are many different mountain bike tours available. We've got everything from sporty short tours to densely wooded tours to eventful circular tours, so you can explore the Murtal away from the traffic.
