By bike

The district Murtal offers a fully developed bicycle root. The Murradweg is commonly known in Austria.

Among experts the Murradweg is known as the most beautiful cycle path near a river in the Alps. Due to the fact that its course leads to some culinary points and that it is often going downhill, it is an absolutely cycle path of enjoyment. Starting in the national park Hohe Tauern it leads near the river Mur to the hot spring and wine region. The Grand Prix Hotel can be a perfect intermediate stop. And for all those who did not come with a bike, we offer a bike rental.


You can find us in the centre of the town Spielberg near Knittelfeld. More than 5000 inhabitants live here. We are placed northern the river Mur and in the eastern part of the Aichfeld, between two cities called Zeltweg and Knittelfeld. In Spielberg there are several restaurants, bars and a disco.
