NEW: CYCLING TOUR IN MÜRZZUSCHLAG
Enjoyment tour on the river
At the foot of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Semmering Railway, nature and culture-loving cyclists will get their money's worth. The trendy city hotel Winkler is located in the small town of Mürzzuschlag in the middle of the beautiful natural landscape at the foot of the Styrian Semmering. It is a perfect starting point for bike tours along the R5 Mürz Valley Cycle Path, but also to the nearby mountains, to the area of the Schneealm, Rax or Fischbacher Alps. The Mürz Valley Cycle Path offers many places to stop for refreshments as well as places of interest and leads downriver via Kapfenberg to the historic old town of Bruck an der Mur, where it joins the Mur Cycle Path (R2). It goes up the river through the Mürzer Oberland Nature Park to Mürzsteg. Mürzzuschlag itself is home to several well-known museums, including the WinterSport and SÜDBAHN museums. The Hotel Restaurant Winkler offers a variety of culinary delights with regional specialties.

In a westerly direction, a worthwhile bike excursion on the Mürz Valley Cycle Path (R5) leads into the valley to Mürzsteg. You cycle uphill almost always along the idyllic Mürz and soon dive into the Mürzer Oberland Nature Park. In Neuberg an der Mürz you should make a stop and visit the magnificent cathedral and its glass factory. The summer residence of the Austrian Federal President, the former imperial hunting lodge of Emperor Franz Joseph and his Sissi is located in Mürzsteg (unfortunately cannot be visited). There are many places to stop for a break along the route.
Pretul wind farm: over the Bärenkogel to the Roseggerhaus, 11,2 km, medium
For a change, don't you want to marvel at the wonderful landscape of the HOCHsteiermark from above? The Windpark Pretul Tour is a wonderful mountain bike tour that beginners can easily do with an e-mountain bike (available from Hotel Winkler / eBock bike rental instead of a city e-bike). The route leads from Mürzzuschlag over the Bärenkogel and the Ganzalm to the Pretul (accessible from May 15.5th to October 15.10th) and offers impressive views. The empty batteries can be recharged with regional delicacies in the Naturfreunde- or Roseggerhaus. The descent takes place via the same route or via other routes of the wind + bike park Pretul.
Individual journey home after breakfast. Possibly a further visit to Mürzzuschlag and its museums.
