Destination

Leoben main square

Turn-by-turn directions

Difficulty: easy, distance: 15,7 km, altitude: 202m, road condition: asphalt

We leave the main square in the direction of the train station and after about 300 meters we turn right from Franz Josef Straße onto Roseggerstraße. At the traffic circle, the route continues through the Chinese Gate to the Falkensteiner Hotel and the water experience world Asia Spa. Passing the ice rink, we reach the new Mur power plant, where we cross the Mur River and then turn right onto Südbahnstraße. At the first traffic light we turn left onto Seegrabenstraße and shortly after onto Proleberstraße. After a slight incline, the route goes downhill towards Proleb.

After Proleb, the route meets the Murradweg R2 at the turnoff to Niklasdorf. We follow this via Niklasdorf back to Leoben. Through the district of Lerchenfeld we follow the Kärntnerstraße to the turnoff into the city center at the Mühltalerstraße. Attention. The R2 already turns right two traffic lights before in the direction of the city center. At the intersection of Kärntnerstraße and Mühltalerstraße we do not continue towards the city center, but turn left into Dirnböckweg. There you will find the more than thousand year old church St. Jakob, the former Roman Catholic parish church of Leoben. From here, it is worth the short climb to the 13th century Massenburg. The ruins were restored in 2000, the fortified tower was provided with a viewing platform from which you have a great view of large parts of the city. Returning to the church of St. Jacob, the route continues along Dreihufeisengasse to Gösser Straße.

After mastering a short incline, we roll into the district of Göss. From the former monastery of the Benedictine nuns, which was abolished in 1782, the late Gothic collegiate church is visible from afar. Particularly worth seeing are the early Romanesque crypt under the choir of the church, the early Gothic frescoes in St. Michael's Chapel and the imposing roof truss of the church. Right next to the grounds of the former monastery is the district's second landmark, the Gösser brewery. The history and present of the world-famous beer are impressively presented in the brewing museum. The tour continues through the so-called Hirschgraben to the bridge over the Mur, where we turn right onto the Mareckkai. On this we cycle along the Mur back to the city center. Over the Waasenbrücke and through the Schwammerlturm we reach the main square.
