River Mur cycle path 7-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 2
Once, traders moved southward along this way from the country of Salzburg to the Slovenian border. Follow them along the river Mur through lush landscapes. Do you like opposites? Then you will enjoy the remote farms of the Lungau mountain farmers just as much as the vibrant city of Graz. The journey leads past castles and ruins, through narrow valleys and vast basins to the Styrian spa region. If you are thirsty for knowledge you will enjoy the open air wood and beer museum. The Mur cycle path and Styria are welcoming you with open arms!
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 another 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.
