Take a little detour

Along the Mur cycle path you ride in the direction of Katsch. The small daughter church Maria Dorn in Saurau just before Frojach is definitely worth a short visit. Once you reach the top, the Wölzer Tauern mountains are at your feet. The Greim, one of the 8 mountain personalities of the Murau region, seems close enough to touch. Via Oberwölz and St. Peter am Kammersberg you get back to your original route.

Another destination on your trip to Murau is the Günster waterfall. Not far from Schöder you will find the highest waterfall in Styria with a drop height of 65m. After a short walk through the forest, you will reach the waterfall via a few wooden bridges. Listen to the roaring water. On hot summer days, the cool air is especially pleasant and refreshing. Small benches along the way invite you to linger. You cycle back via Rottenmann and the Ranten cycle path.
