Sport, culture and enjoyment form a symbiosis on the R5: from Neuberg Abbey with the Kaiserhof Glass Manufactory to the SÜDBAHN Museum, Brahms Museum and WinterSportMuseum, via Peter Rosegger's country house, Oberkapfenberg Castle, Bruck Castle Hill and the "Iron Fountain" on the main square in Bruck an der Mur.
Beautiful places along the cycle path invite you to take small breaks. Especially in the summer months, a refreshing break at the Neuberg recreational pond "Urani", at the recreational lake in Krieglach or on the banks of the Mürz to cool your feet is recommended.
Culinary delights are well catered for. Many inns near the cycle path invite you to take a break and enjoy some regional refreshments.
From Bruck an der Mur you can continue along the Murradweg R2 in the direction of Graz or end the day with a delicious ice cream on Bruck's main square.
TIP: For leisurely pedal knights there are e-bike rental stations available, e.g. E-Bock, the e-bike store in Mürzzuschlag.
A stop for an excellent lunch is recommended in Langenwang. In the middle of the village you will find the Hotel Restaurant Krainer, where the award-winning chef Andreas Krainer will spoil you with his excellent creations.
After another leisurely hour of cycling, you reach Kindberg . To ride through the small town, you have to briefly leave the R5 and follow the main road. Kindberg delights with the Zunktbaum in the middle of town and the pedestrian zone spoils with coffee and ice cream specialties.
Once you arrive in Bruck an der Mur, you will find several culinary tips: The Riegler Inn directly on the main square, the winery in the Baderhaus located directly on the Mur or and the 2 toque restaurant "Johanns".
