MTB Tour Sommerthörl Murtal

On this long MTB round trip from Fohnsdorf via St. Oswald on the Sommerthörl further to Spielberg and back to Fohnsdorf you will get to know the beautiful Murtal region on bike.
The starting point of this mountain bike tour is the parking lot of the Therme Aqualux in Fohnsdorf in the Murtal adventure region. From there you go up towards Pölstal to St. Oswald to the bike junction 4. From now on it goes on gravel road up to the Sommerthörl. Now you have the opportunity to park your bike at the Hike & Bike station and take a short hike to the small church of Maria Lorette. Now the route continues on a gravel road (up to the barrier) in the Roßbachgraben past the Gasthof Wachter, comfortably winding downhill on asphalt into Gaal. On hot days we recommend a pleasant cooling off in the Gaal swimming pond. The tour continues winding along beautiful alpine meadows out of the Gaalgraben through the Hammergraben until shortly before Sachendorf, from there the tour leads over the bridge of the Ingeringbach right up to the Red Bull Ring and further past Flatschach and back along the bike path to Fohnsdorf.
