A place that gives you goose pimples and fires up your racing spirit, of clear mountain air and the proud drive to conquer the summits, of warm hospitality and the merry sound of children's laughter – all of this is our Murtal in the heart of Styria in Austria.
Discover the many treasures of the Region Murtal, region of adventure and experience. Have you ever experienced the indescribable feeling of standing on top of a mountain, breathing in crisp mountain air, having reached the end of your long hike? Drunk in the earthy scent of the forest floor as you conquer the Zirbitz, king of Styria's mountains? Stopped at the highest Schutzhütte (alpine inn restaurant) with your family to enjoy a traditional Murtal "Steirerkäsbrot" or join the owner in toasting your success with a warming "Zirbenschnapserl"? The people of the Murtal are known for the warmth of their hospitality. On the way back down, discover clear mountain springs and pure nature. Everyday life is far away; the sky is close enough to touch.
In the Murtal you live between deceleration and acceleration. Feel the heartbeat while you're cheering along at an exciting race at the Red Bull Ring. Or have you ever stepped on the gas in one of these racing cars yourself? Experience the pure adrenaline kick. It's exactly this speed that will help you slow down in the Murtal, whether you're hiking in the fabulous mountain world with more than 92 peaks over 2,000 meters or relaxing in the thermal spa. Discover here untouched nature, quiet Mur floodplains, peace and serenity.
