The Murtal – where we give it some gas. 

for Motorsport enthusiasts

 

Hardly any other region in Austria is as well-known to petrol-heads as the green Murtal.

Here, speed is the name of the game – and not just on the track. The Murtal offers numerous activities to make the hearts of all motorsport enthusiasts race.

Feel the headwind as you ride through nature on long and winding tours that make everyday life recede into the distance. Far away from busy motorways, you'll cruise along quiet routes and revel in the impressive views of Styria's serene green landscapes. Pass roads that go on for miles invite you to lean into the bends and unleash your passion for motoring. Whether on two, three or four wheels, in vintage vehicles, modern classics or sports cars, the entire Region Murtal is built for touring, with plenty of great places to stop for refreshment and a comfortable rest.

When you put pedal to the metal and feel the adrenalin kick in, you'll understand what horsepower really means. Or maybe you prefer to test your skill on two wheels and take on the trial parcours in the nearby forests?

Experience for yourself the Murtal's best destinations for motorsport, live life in the fast lane, and become part of the marvel of motoring.

Keen to put your foot down without risking a ticket?

PURE Adrenalin

Want to get your pulse racing by going for a ride in a race car? Ever experienced that inimitable Porsche feeling? Then you've come to the right place at the famed Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

The driving experiences on offer promise pure adrenalin. Drift at the driving centre surrounded by the pro race circuit and be master of the 330 HP KTM X-Bow (or maybe it will master you?!). Taste the air of the motorsporting Murtal and become a racing pro on the track. Take a seat in one of our world-class machines, like a Nascar, Porsche Cayman or GT.

Feel the engine throb in one of the Formula 3 vehicles or take your own car for a spin on the very asphalt ruled by Max Verstappen and co.

Red bull ring tour

Breathe in pure racing air in the Region Murtal and visit the exhibition at the Red Bull Ring building in Spielberg. Here you will find iconic vehicles from the racing scene, from F1 race cars to offroad buggies to Moto GP bikes. The entire complex evokes the spirit of motorsport greats such as Gerhard Berger, Nici Lauder, Michael Schuhmacher and many more.

Do you prefer a nostalgic trip down memory lane? Then why not pay a visit to one of our most popular destinations? At the Puchmuseum in Judenburg, you'll find cult Austrian brands from the 50s and 60s. Visitors who were there to experience the Puch success story themselves love to reminisce, while the younger generation listens enthralled to grandpa's stories of driving.

Another iconic motor is on display in Gaal in Styria. Visit the VW Beetle Museum to experience the fascinating "Knutschkugel" ("smooch bubble"). This highlight of automobile history is known for its reliability and design. The Museum puts a great deal of attention into demonstrating how many different variants there were.

At the Museum der Landtechnik (Museum of Agricultural Engineering) in Kobenz, things take a traditional turn. In 1900, horse power in Austria was replaced by machinery and engine power in agriculture. These machines have been evolving ever since. Discover the fascination of tractors and steam engines. Find out what a "Göpel" (horse gin) or a "Stiftendreschmaschine" (threshing machine) is. Get an up-close look at how agriculture developed over the last 100 years, right where it all happened.
