The Murtal holiday region – variety that leaves you spoilt for choice and a magnificent natural setting are integral parts of our recipe for carefree holiday adventures! Spectacular mountain peaks and sun-drenched meadows are waiting to be conquered – by you! At altitudes from 700 to 2,700 metres, from the gentle summits of the Seetal and Seckau Alps to the more forbidding peaks of the Tauern range, you are certain to live the “high” life in the Murtal holiday region. The cycling trail along the Mur river is one of Austria’s most frequented cycling routes and is a great choice for relaxed tours to take in the scenery as well as for more ambitious biking enthusiasts. The route takes you through towns and villages that go back 1000 years, past ancient castles and picturesque monasteries.
The Murtal is also thoroughly familiar with words like tee-off, birdie and putting: On the region’s three golf courses, both rookies and pros may be found practising their swings. The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg is all about getting your adrenaline to surge: have a go yourself during one of the driving experiences on offer at the racecourse or watch the pros during top racing events.
The tour through the Murtal holiday region includes many more stops, such as the planetarium and the Puch museum in Judenburg, the treetop hiking path high above Rachau, the Murau timber world or the “Nockyflitzer” summer toboggan run on Turracher Höhe.
In winter, the Murtal holiday region not only offers top-quality pistes, but also guaranteed snow. This is the perfect setting for your first “steps” on skis as well as for spectacular downhill runs that are strictly for experienced skiers. On a more romantic note, there are torch-lit hikes to be enjoyed, solitary ski tours or winter hikes; the wide range of choice for non-skiers includes tobogganing, cross-country skiing and snow-shoe hikes. To relax tired muscles, try the soothing waters of the hot springs in the spas of Aqualux, Fohnsdorf or the Gesundheitstherme Wildbad, Dürnstein.
