Ski tours for hobby tourers on the Grebenzen

The Grebenzen is particularly popular for longer, as well as shorter ski tours. The huts along the way invite you to stop for a bite to eat.

Enjoy the Murau mountains

Your place of longing for nature lovers, the Murau Kreischberg region is nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Nockberge and the alpine Niedere Tauern in Styria. For sports enthusiasts, enjoyment and beginners you will find fantastic and varied tours around the picturesque town of Murau.

Slowly you make your gentle tracks along the mountain slopes. Your thoughts focus on the essentials and leave your everyday worries behind. Well equipped, wrapped up like an onion and the skins on your skis, you listen intently to the crunching under your feet.

Your tour will take you over draw trails, open meadow terrain and steep ridges through the deep snow-covered winter forest. The wind blows the snow from the snow-covered trees. You glide over open alpine meadows and step by step you get closer to your destination. Once you arrive, the Murau mountains are at your feet. Warm yourself with a cup of tea. Past snow-covered trees and idyllic winter scenery you whiz down into the valley. Refreshment such as a Murau wheat beer is already waiting for you.
