Fun-filled swimming plus a place to relax and unwind – dive in and enjoy: Discover worlds of water in the region of Semmering-Waldheimat-Veitsch. Experience the water and nature adventure world in Krieglach – this popular recreational lake complex is nestled in the picturesque backdrop of the Mürztal mountains. It offers sports enthusiasts the perfect conditions for athletic training in and around the water. The idyllic landscape around the lake also offers plenty of space to relax and unwind. A separate bathing area for small children and a pedal boat rental service make this lake a popular destination for families, too. A warm summer day is best spent in the cool water: The outdoor adventure pool in St. Barbara im Mürztal / Mitterdorf features not only a large swimming and sports pool but also a 14-metre-long and very wide slide. A large sunbathing area ensures that you can spend a nice day at the beach undisturbed. Even on colder days, you and your family do not have to forgo the fun of swimming. Careen down the water slide at the indoor VIVAX recreational centre in Mürzzuschlag or use the sauna and fitness room. Splash around in the Veitsch Adventure Swimming Pool, the first official indoor swimming pool in Styria. In addition to a water slide, the sports facilities have been expanded with an indoor climbing facility, and a spacious sauna area with bio-, infrared and Finnish saunas as well as a steam bath and solarium are also part of the facilities. You can also enjoy a sauna and relax at some of our accommodation facilities, such as the ****Hotel Restaurant Krainer or Gasthof Gesslbauer. These are just a few possibilities when it comes to the world of water and swimming in the region of Semmering-Waldheimat-Veitsch.

Tip: Bodies of water are also easy to find at many excursion destinations and activities in the region. Visit the pristine natural floodplain areas in Mürzzuschlag and Langenwang or cycle along the Mürztal Cycle Path R5, where the Mürz River is a constant companion.
