Cycling through the Green Heart of Austria
Mur Bike Trail

Tour Description: Self-guided

When rivers were the fastest mode of transportation, traders followed the Mur River south from Salzburg to the Slovenian border. This tour along the Mur Cycle Path begins in Lungau, known as Austria's Little Canada. Surrounded by mountains as tall as 6500 to 9000 ft/2000 to 3000 m, you cycle through pristine nature on the banks of the Mur featuring more than 200 bird species. Along with the natural wonders of the route, you will visit Graz, the lively capital of the Styria region.

The tour finishes in the lovely, warm and fertile plains of South Styria complete with vineyards, pumpkin fields and thermal spas. Learn about the local history and way of life as you visit museums, including an open-air farm museum, a wood and forest museum and a beer museum. This is a tour of contrasts as you cycle through Mur and Styria, the Green Heart of Austria.
