Parktherme Wüstenlauf


The combination of running in a beautiful environment and relaxation in one of the most beautiful thermal spas in the country offers this running route. In conjunction with the rustic refreshment options in the cozy Buschenschenken an absolute must for every running enthusiast.


After the restaurant "Dietzen" left away on a road, which leads to the Murdamm - along the gravel road of the Murdamm until you get back to the asphalt road - right away and again via Liebmannsee back to the Parktherme Bad Radkersburg. Half of the route is completely identical to the Parktherme Desert Run. This route is especially suitable for athletic training, but also for partners who like to run a distance together, but then leave the "hot desert" to him or her? (Total length: 20.0 km)
