Uphill and Downhill Ride - Frohnleiten

From the banks of the Mur to Naturpark Almenland. Impressive mountain views of the Rote Wand and Röthelstein are the reward for the climb up and there is no shortage of swimming fun. The start and finish is in picturesque Frohnleiten – don't miss it: city tour and break with culinary treats.
We start at the Volkshauspark in Frohnleiten, a park on the banks of the Mur that is really worth seeing, and from here we cycle along the beautifully laid out GU4 cycle path to Schrems. Then we head along the stream constantly slightly uphill to the small village of Tyrnau. After a bridge we follow the signposted dragon mountain bike tour on a beautiful forest path with some hairpin bends up to the Heuberg. The mountain stage is done, from now on it is downhill, following the dragon route. Impressive views of the Rote Wand and the Mur valley reward the effort. After a short stretch on the R2 Mur Cycling Path, we branch off to the Tieber See lake and arrive at the beautiful swimming pond via the new Mur cycle bridge and the village of Röthelstein. How about a dip in the water and a fine snack?

On the Mur Cycling Path version to the right of the Mur we reach our starting point Frohnleiten again via Laufnitzdorf and Rothleiten. A walk through the pretty town is definitely recommended – detailed information boards on numerous buildings bring its eventful history to life. If you are still fit and in the mood, a detour to Rabenstein Castle and the Murhof (one of the most beautiful Styrian golf clubs) is a good idea.
