Amongst those in the know, the River Mur Cycling Trail is rated as one of the most beautiful river cycling trails in the Alps. Its course - gently downhill past many culinary destinations - means that it is a truly leisurely cycling trail. It starts in the Hohe Tauern National Park and accompanies the River Mur right into Styrian Wine and Spa Country.
This scenic arc makes an original, varied, and enjoyable impression from spring until autumn. Gentle hills, mountain pastures, lakes and riverscapes are your companion for unadulterated enjoyment of nature at the source of the Mur in Lungau in the state of Salzburg and further into northwestern Styria. The variety of culinary experiences ranges from typical home cooking to the finest the forest, meadows and rivers have to offer.
Leoben, the Montanist and university town in the heart of Styria and the old market town of Bruck an der Mur with its enchanting old town invite you take a pleasant break and enjoy the culture. As state capital, World Cultural Heritage Site and Austria's epicurean capital, Graz constitutes the living link between the mountainous charm of Upper Styria and the Mediterranean flair of the south.
Romantic vineyards, hot springs, pumpkins fields and orchards define the southern landscape. Climate and hot Wellness tips are the Styrian "dolce vita". The culinary lightness of being around apples, wine and pumpkins influences creative cooking.
