St. Michael im Lungau
The small market town of St. Michael im Lungau is one of the coldest places in Austria in winter. The surrounding mountains, the alpine landscapes, the pretty townscape and friendly people make St. Michael a popular destination, not only in winter. We consider St. Michael the perfect starting point for our wonderful cycle tour along the Mur.
The historic small town of Judenburg is the capital of the Mur Valley district of Styria. Due to its almost Mediterranean flair, the historic sights of the famous Puch Museum, thousands of visitors come to Judenburg every year. And of course also because of the beautiful Mur Cycle Path.

When you reach Austria’s second largest city, you have the finishing point of the cycle tour in sight. Try to visit as many sights as possible. An absolute must, however, are the old town of Graz, the famous Schlossberg with the symbol of the city – the Graz clock tower, the Herzgoshof and the many beautiful churches!
The beautiful spa town of Bad Radkersburg will be a treat for your tired legs, because there’s a reason why the fantastic thermal springs of the area are one of the most popular resorts in Styria! We’d like to spend a day or two longer here.
Useful information about a cycling holiday on the Mur
The climate along the Mur cannot be described generally. The winter-cold Lungau, for example, is more rainy (especially in winter) than the Mur Valley. The weather here often varies from one valley to another. So be prepared for any weather situation, because both rain and sunshine can occur at any time. In general, the time from May to September is the warmest, driest and most beautiful period of the year – in Lungau in Salzburg, as well as in Styria.
