Between 700 and 2,700 metres above sea level, from the gentle Seetal and Seckau Alps to the rugged peaks of the Tauern, there's no end to the highlights in the holiday region Murtal. Some stages of the hiking route From the Glacier to the Wine, which runs from the Dachstein to wine country, also accompany you through this enchanting landscape. The Mur forms the "green" thread that runs through the region. The Mur cycling path, one of the most beautiful and most-travelled cycling paths in Austria, runs along its banks. Pleasure cyclists and sporting cyclists alike who climb up the gentle peaks will get their money's worth here. On three golf courses, rookies and pros hit their drives. Accelerate and decelerate, adrenaline kicks in the next class –all of this is offered in turn on the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.
In winter, the Murtal skiing mountains not only convince with their excellent slope quality, but also with guaranteed snow thanks to the latest snow-making equipment. This is also the right terrain for your first steps in the snow or a breathtaking downhill run for the "pros". Things get romantic during a torch hike, on a ski trip or on winter hikes, as well as off the slopes – on toboggan runs, cross-country ski runs or on snowshoe hikes. To relax, dive into the water of the Aqualux or Fohnsdorf thermal springs or the health resort Wildbad in Dürnstein.
In the holiday region of Murtal, the hiking route From the Glacier to the Wine is particularly diverse. Start at the foot of the imposing mountains of the Lower Tauern with their cirques and mountain lakes, leave the region via the gentle summits of the Koralm to finally immerse yourself into wine country. In between: plenty of culture in the historic city of Murau, the nature park Zirbitzkogel-Grebenzen with a true cultural gem, the Benedictine monastery St. Lambrecht, and one of the most exciting hiking trails in Austria, the Via Natura, and finally the Zirbitzkogel, after whose crossing bring sus into the idyllic and historically exciting town of Obdach.
The topic of wood has a special significance in the holiday region of Murtal: in the 'lumber world Murau', around 80 wood world stations lead to special cultural and natural sites and show the economic cycles of lumber. International festivals, such as the music festival in Spielberg, or festivals in cities like Murau and Judenburg, show how musical summer is. Relax and head out on a peaceful path towards nature and culture. Pilgrimages and monasteries in the region invite you to experience culture and green ambience together: cultural enjoyment outdoors.
