Being active around Graz

An idyllic bicycle tour in Austria, a real racing driver feeling or a day at the lake with that holiday feeling – you can find all that only a few minutes’ drive away by car from the Styrian capital.

    Mur cycle path

    Keen cyclists say that the cycle path alongside the River Mur is one of the most beautiful and varied routes in the south of Austria.  It stretches over 365 km from the source of the Mur in the Hohen Tauern mountains to sunny Bad Radkersburg. When visiting Graz and the surroundings, you should try to have a look at part of this idyllic route.

  2. 2

    Graz Adventure Park

    Even adrenalin junkies will get their money’s worth in the Abenteuer Park Graz with its 44 different outdoor and 25 further indoor activities. Not only is the high rope course in the wood exciting but also the Dragon’s Swing, the Power of Tower and the High Slackline.

  3. 3

    Styria Karting

    If you really want to rev it up, then you should definitely plan a pit stop at Styria Karting in Zettling. You can really feel the wind in your face on the 380m long go-cart track as the vehicles have 200 ccm and 6.5 HP.

  4. 4


    Only a few kilometres from Graz and not far from the airport Graz-Thalerhof, you can really experience a holiday feeling at Lake Schwarzl. Sunbathing, eating, drinking, water skiing or wakeboarding – if you are bored here, then it is your own fault.
