The route:

The Mur, Austria's second-longest river, has its origins here with us in the Lungau. In its honor, one of the most beautiful bike paths in Austria was created. Along its 365 km route, we accompany the river from the Lungau, through Styria, and down to Bad Radkersburg, on the Slovenian border in Styria's Thermenland region. This bike path shows different and beautiful landscapes. The individual stages can be devised and combined depending on your mood and what you want. In any case, you should ensure that you have a good map (e.g. the “River Mur Cycling Trail” bikeline guide published by Esterbauer) because there are so many alternative routes and beautiful places to take a quick detour to. Those who wish to can travel alone or under the supervision of the cycling tour operator. The accommodation options are just as varied as the links to other cycling trails, e.g. via the R26 Zirbenland (Pine Land) Cycling Trail to River Drau Cycling Trail, via the R15 Rastland (Relaxation Land) Cycling Trail to the River Enns Cycling Trail or via the R5 Mürz Valley Cycling Trail towards Vienna.
Recommended time and route plan: You should take about a week including spare time for sightseeing. Cycling accommodation providers along the River Mur Cycling Trail will be happy to help plan your route. They will, of course, also provide information about bike hire and service stations and will have at hand a number of good tips for more attractions along the trail.
