Along the Mur River

Judenburg – Leoben – Bruck/Mur – Hartberg – Bad Radkersburg

Tour information: 250 km / approx. 3.5 hours driving time

As many as five Small Historic Towns are located in Styria, four of them along the Mur River. The route starts in Judenburg, a medieval town situated amidst beautiful Swiss stone pine woodland, in the winter a relaxed family ski resort, then continues to Leoben. A varied history between monastic splendour and steel town bustle characterises the city. Furthermore it is home of Gösser beer and attracts many young people thanks to the University. The Styrian hilly landscape characterises the route further on to our next destination, Bruck an der Mur. Surrounded by impressive mountains, the town harmoniously unites the mountains of Styria with urban life. Salt trade once made the town rich as attested to by its many beautiful historic buildings so characteristic of its townscape. The route continues across the Teichalm and past Weiz to Hartberg. The town looks back on 3,000 years of history and has been awarded the “Città Slow” status – as a town which values and promotes relaxation and deceleration. Turning southwards the route leads past Bad Waltersdorf, the magnificent Riegersburg and the health resort of Bad Gleichenberg to Bad Radkersburg situated near the Slovenian border. A delightful spa town with Mediterranean flair and so much to offer, from thermal springs to delicious wines and food, making it a wonderful finale to this beautiful journey through Styria.
