Hiking map & tour book
An overview of the hiking trails
The well-marked trails lead across Alpine terrain, gentle mountain ridges and meadows. There are also several family-friendly hiking trails. You will find an overview of all the hiking options – for all levels of fitness, taste and mood – in the Murau-Kreischberg hiking map and the tour book.
It also includes information on which hikes you need to complete to get the Murau-Kreischberg hiking pin. It is shaped like a hiking boot and is a nice little reminder of your active holiday in Styria.
If you would prefer a holiday on two wheels, there is also a cycling map.
The hiking and cycling map for the Murau-Kreischberg region shows all the routes at a glance. The map is available free of charge at tourist information offices.
In the hiking and cycling tour book (in German), you will find comprehensive route descriptions, elevation profiles, refreshment options, alternatives and a map for every tour. The tour book is available from the tourist information offices for € 9.50.
Levels of ability
The relevant level of ability is indicated on each map. You will find hiking trails for three different levels of ability in the Kreischberg-Murau region.
- Beginner hiking trails are wide and have only minor ascents and descents. They are marked in blue. No special knowledge is required for these routes.
- Intermediate trails require appropriate equipment and endurance, and are marked in red. These hikes often have steep passages.
- Advanced trails are almost completely steep and are marked in black. These hikes feature long ascents and descents and require a good level of fitness.
Strong shoes and clothes suitable for adverse weather conditions are a prerequisite for all hikes.
Clear, uniform signposting means that you don't have to hold your hiking map in your hand the whole time. Simply follow the yellow signs on the hiking trails. There are different signs for the simpler footpaths.
If you're not exhausted after your hike, there are many other activities to experience in the Murau-Kreischberg region. Why not climb the next mountain on a mountainbike? Or how about a round of golf? There are swimming pools and lakes in the surrounding area, where you can cool off.
And the Murau-Kreischberg region isn't boring in winter either. Whether you want a traditional day on the ski slopes or a new experience – ski touring or snowshoe hiking, for example – you'll find the right thing here.
