Cycling and mountain biking or e-biking in the countryside

Our mountains and alpine pastures are a joy to discover by bike

Cycling on stunning trails

The R5 Mürz Valley Cycle Path, R46 Semmering Cycle Path and R48 Veitsch Valley Cycle Path intersect within our region. This cycle path stands out for the numerous sights and stops along the pleasant route between bodies of water, meadows, forests and towns. Highlights of the route: The museums in Mürzzuschlag, Brahms Museum, Kunsthaus Muerz, SÜDBAHN Museum and WinterSportMuseum are all ideal for a cycling break. A refreshing break in the Langenwanger Au area and a cool splash in the Mürz will motivate you to continue. After that, a visit to the Rosegger Museum and Rosegger Park in Krieglach will immerse you in the world of the great writer Peter Rosegger. The Lichtenegg ruins in St. Barbara im Mürztal / Wartberg or the world’s highest pilgrim cross in St. Barbara im Mürztal / Veitsch are both worth a visit too. Enjoy cosy excursions with the whole family!
