Mur Bike Path

From Gentian to the Riesling Wine

Tour Map

Route

Tour profile: Level 2

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. From St. Michael to Bad Radkersburg you will cycle downhill 870 metres in altitude. This clearly shows that the Mur cycle path mostly leads downhill. Some slight climbs have to be cycled during the first two stages, but you will always find yourself on tranquil bike paths.

Day 1: St. Michael im Lungau

Individual arrival.

Day 2: St. Michael – Murau, approx. 55 km

First, the route leads to Tamsweg - the path is characterized by wood in all its diversity, as the St. Ruprecht Wood Museum also shows. Today’s stage destination is tranquil Murau, a medieval brewery town with a beer museum, Obermurau Castle and a beautiful town center.

Day 3: Murau – Judenburg/surroundings, approx. 65 km

Today’s stage leads you through the narrows of the Mur valley at the foot of the Niedere Tauern. Passing the villages of Frojach, Frauenburg and Sauerbrunn, you will head towards the stage destination of Judenburg, which has a lot to offer with its castle, the town houses, the Magdalena Church and the town tower.

Day 4: Judenburg/surroundings – Bruck an der Mur/Oberaich, approx. 60 km

First, the route passes Maria Buch and the Seckau Abbey. In the old industrial towns that follow, one notices the successes of the architectural overcoming of the past: Well-kept old towns, vibrant pedestrian zones and interesting museums invite you to linger. In Leoben, Göss Abbey and the Gösser Brewery are worth a visit, and finally you come to Bruck an der Mur, which knows how to convince with its picturesque Schlossberg.

Day 5: Bruck an der Mur/Oberaich – Graz, approx. 60 km

The first section of today’s tour takes you to Frohnleiten, then pure nature accompanies you along the way - you pass old farms, orchards and high rock faces. Finally, you’ll trundle into the Styrian capital of Graz. Highlights include the Schlossberg with the clock tower, Eggenberg Palace, the Landhaus and the City Hall. But also numerous museums and great pubs invite you to stay.

Day 6: Graz – Mureck, approx. 65 km

The Seggau Castle with its prince’s room and the painting gallery spoil the eye today, the 300-year-old wine cellar makes the hearts of wine lovers beat faster. Today’s route is a successful introduction to the South Styrian Wine Route. Worth seeing in the stage destination Mureck: the church, the town hall and the ship mill.

Day 7: Mureck – Bad Radkersburg, approx. 25 km

The Mur river as a guideline, the Röcksee as a bathing lake, the Peterquelle as mineral water and the thermal springs in Bad Radkersburg - all these water sources will accompany you on your last cycling stage. Afterwards individual departure/return transfer or extension.
