About the region

Precious stones
The world of precious stones is something very special here at the Krampl Museum of Natural History. Be enchanted by the sparkle and variety of stones from all over the world. You can also discover luminous minerals at our special exhibition. Fun for the whole family is also our stone pool, where you can go in search of your personal lucky stone.

The tour of the gemstone cutting workshop offers insights into the ancient craft and the special tools and machines needed to create works of art and unique pieces. In the jewellery workshop you can look behind the scenes of the jewellery manufacture. Be active yourself and try your hand at the art of stone cutting in various workshops. Design your own bracelet or experience the art of pottery at first hand. Of course, you will also find a shop where you can take home your most beautiful creation as a souvenir.

Pilgrimage church
Through the beautiful hamlets of Weißkirchen i.d.OPf. you can make a wonderful pilgrimage to Maria Buchkirche, one of the oldest churches in Austria. The mighty high altar from 1651 is entwined with golden vine tendrils and is thus visually very appealing. A special feature is the late Gothic statue of Our Lady from 1480, enthroned under a striking canopy in the middle of the altar. The church offers space for masses, but also for religious concerts and consecrations - in 2017 it has already been the venue for these ceremonies 23 times!

Hike to the castle ruins
Another exciting castle in Weißkirchen is the Eppenstein Ruin. Thanks to the local castle association, this one from the 11th century is perfectly preserved and can easily be reached on foot. The intact castle offers a great view of the Mur valley below, so you can enjoy the beautiful landscape at the same time. You can reach the rock of the castle via an impressive bridge and immediately admire everything around you. The hike here is also suitable for children and promises to be an exciting experience. Take your children to the world of knights, kings and court jesters - the wildest stories are created here!

Due to its connection to nature, Weißkirchen is part of the Zirbenland together with Judenburg and Obdach. The producers of this brand have fully dedicated themselves to the miracle of Swiss stone pine. Great products made from the oil, wood and seeds of the tree accompany you here. Taste the heavenly creations and let the extraordinary creations convince you. The accommodation providers and producers will be happy to advise you on how the Swiss stone pine can also positively influence your life.

 50Plus Camping

The motto "class not mass" promises pure relaxation: enjoy the beautiful landscape, the excellent cuisine and the absolute tranquillity after active days in the Mur valley. Take a leisurely swim in the bathing pond and simply enjoy yourself!
