In Deutschfeistritz, located about 20 km north of Graz, you can get to know all of Austria in just a few hours. There is a lot to discover in the 100 historic original buildings from many centuries when strolling through the romantic valley of the Austrian Open-Air Museum Stübing.
"In the interplay between water power and the glowing iron" is the motto in the Scythe Forge Museum Deutschfeistritz. More than 60,000 scythes were forged here annually in the "golden years" and exported around the world. The entire production facility with its six giant water wheels is well-maintained in its original form. Regular events also take place in this special framework, such as the "Old Hag Summer Market", theatre in the scythe forge museum, concerts and exhibitions. All nature lovers and athletes also embark on the Mur cycling path, which runs downstream to Graz and further into southern Styria and upstream to Bruck an der Mur and Leoben.
