As the name suggests, the town of Stadl an der Mur is located on the Murradweg cycle trail. It runs along the River Mur from the neighbouring Salzburg region of Lungau to Bad Radkersburg and on to Slovenia and Croatia. The River Mur also offers anglers and those hungry for adventure an unforgettable holiday experience rafting on the Murtal. At the start of the tour, we walk past the parish church of Stadl, dedicated to St. John. In essence a Romanesque church with a late Gothic appearance, it also displays Baroque and neo Gothic features. Along the route, numerous seating facilities invite you to take a break, offering a wonderful panorama of Stadl, with its leisure centre plus bathing lake and the Almdorf Stadl chalet park. Running past mountain farmsteads, the walk provides unique insights into regional agriculture. In the upper part of the route, there is a great view of the slopes at the Sixpack chair lift in the Kreischberg skiing and hiking region.
