R45 Gleichenberg cycle path

The R45 "Gleichenberg Cycle Path" connects the Raabtal Cycle Path and the Mur Cycle Path. This wonderful bike path takes us through the historic spa town Bad Gleichenberg.
The R45 is a comfortable bike path between Feldbach and the river Mur. With only one slope, this bike path is also very suitable for families with children. From Feldbach to Bad Gleichenberg, the bike path runs alongside the main road, then side roads with little traffic. Tip: A visit to the Styrassic Park is sure to be fun for the kids!

Along the bike path we have many opportunities for a rest or to discover something exciting. Just a few examples of "pit stops": Feldbach, explore the old town; Therme der Ruhe Bad Gleichenberg; historic spa; Styrassic Park; golf course; Weinhandlmühle; Straden - A place with four churches, but only 3 towers; Museum Triangle with Nostalgic Country Life, Healing Water Museum, Wedding Culture.Museum; a game of mini golf at Radhotel Schischek.

The Bad Gleichenberger Radweg leads over a distance of 34 km through the Styrian Volcano Country and has the starting point in Feldbach (connection to the R11) or in Donnersdorf (connection to the R2).


Coming from Feldbach, the R45 is close to the main road, be careful not to underestimate the slope. Don't worry, this is the only one of its kind on the R45. After this climb we will soon reach Bad Gleichenberg, a historic spa town. Let's take the time to get to know the wonderful spa park a bit and maybe spend some time in the Therme der Ruhe in Bad Gleichenberg. Afterwards we continue via Sulz and Waldsberg to Straden. Straden is famous for its location with the Himmelsberg and for its four churches with only three towers - how does that work? Let's see for ourselves! (The detour to Straden brings us additional meters of altitude, but also from the valley the place is beautiful to see).

Along the Sulzbach, the cycle path leads us further to Radochen and to Unterpurkla, where we will soon reach the junction in the Au. Here we can cycle along the Murradweg and hear the thirst of Knoblach in spring - wild garlic grows particularly well here!

Let's take our time and enjoy the small towns around the R45. If you want to start a day trip from Bad Gleichenberg, the junctions in Feldbach and Donnersdorf are wonderful.

Round trip 1: R45 direction Feldbach, R11 direction Jennersdorf, R12 direction Bad Radkersburg with turnoff in Kalch direction Bad Gleichenberg
