Set out from Unternberg and tour the Lungau
LAID-BACK BICYCLING EXPERIENCES in Unternberg
Unternberg is an ideal basecamp from which to explore the countless bike paths of the Lungau. Leisurely bike tours at the foot of the Mitterberg or Schwarzenberg turn every day of your holiday into a delightful experience. Bike tours leading through the Lungau side valleys climb very gently, meaning that, whenever you are ready, you will enjoy cruising back to your accommodations in Murtal even more.
This is also a good starting point from which to explore the Mur Bike Path, probably the most beautiful river-side bike trail in the Alpine world. After a first stage taking you to the headwaters of the River Mur in the National Park village of Muhr, it continues to the Thermenland Region of Styria and even into Slovenia.
The Unternberg Culture Bike Path is an award-winning project initated by the local Young Farmers' Association, which can be enjoyed at rest areas for cyclists within the community of Unternberg. There, the local folk-heritage calendar is presented in the form of sculptures and figures made out of wood, metal and other materials.
