Mur cycle path

Mur-Cycle-Path, short tour to Graz

Once, traders moved southward along this way from the country of Salzburg to the Slovenian border. Follow them along the river Mur through lush landscapes. Do you like opposites? Then you will enjoy the remote farms of the Lungau mountain farmers just as much as the vibrant city of Graz. The journey leads past castles and ruins, through narrow valleys and vast basins to the Styrian spa region. If you are thirsty for knowledge you will enjoy the open air wood and beer museum. The Mur cycle path and Styria are welcoming you with open arms!

Itinerary

First, you will cycle to Tamsweg (historic market place, pilgrimage church of St. Leonhard). This region is characterised by wood in all its diversity (wood museum St. Ruprecht). Today’s destination is the tranquil town Murau, a medieval beer brewing town with a beer museum, the castle Obermurau, and a beautiful centre. 

Today, you will ride your bike through the straits of the Mur valley at the foot of the Lower Tauern Mountains. In Frojach you will find the Narrow-Gauge Railway Museum, in Frauenburg legendary ruins, and in Sauerbrunn the oldest mineral water source in Styria. Many historic sites can also be seen in Judenburg: the city tower, the former sovereign’s castle, town houses, and Magdalen Church.

On the fourth day, you will visit Maria Buch (pilgrimage church) and the monastery Seckau (Benedictine abbey). In the old industrial towns, one can clearly see how successful the locals dealt with their past when watching their architectural sites: Well-kept old towns, vibrant pedestrian zones, and interesting museums. In Leoben you can visit the monastery Göss and the Gösser brewery. In Bruck an der Mur you will find interesting sites such as the Schlossberg hill, the Kornmesserhaus, and the city hall.

First, you will cycle to Frohnleiten (park Murlend, “Tratschweiberbrunnen” fountain). Then, you will find pure nature along the way: old farmhouses and orchards and high cliffs. You will come across castle Rabenstein, the Lurgrotte caves and the open-air museum Stübing. The capital city of Styria, Graz, has lots of points of interest to offer: the Schlossberg hill with its clock tower, castle Eggenberg, the country house and the town hall, countless museums, and great restaurants.

After breakfast individual depature or transfer with our bus.

Tour character

From the spring of the river Mur to the Slovenian border, the Mur cycle path inclines by a total of 1,700 metres in altitude on a length of about 365 kilometres. Some slight climbs have to be cycled during the first two stages, but you will always find yourself on tranquil bike paths.
