Family and skiing hotel in the holiday region Murtal-Spielberg
The brewers city Murau is located directly on the banks of the river Mur, immersed in the beautiful landscape of the Mur valley. It is one of the most popular excursion destinations in the region and is also an ideal starting point for active hikes in idyllic mountain worlds. The JUFA Hotel is located only a few minutes walk from the town centre and yet offers rest and recreation during your holidays – at any time of the year.
The Murtal-Spielberg holiday region is well-known, due to its numerous leisure options. Hiking, tobogganing on the summer toboggan track, cycling and climbing tours, swimming fun and, of course, skiing in the Murtal Ski Mountains. The most well-known are the Kreischberg – the venue of the Snowboard World Cup and the popular family ski region – and the ski resorts, Lachtal and Turracher Höhe. Apart from skiing, you can also test your skills on a sledge or bob.
The family-friendly JUFA Hotel Murau*** in Murtal valley consists of 3 historical buildings and apart from the comfortably furnished rooms, it also offers its guests a modern sauna- and spa area. The natural deep relaxation method by heat keeps you fit for upcoming hiking and skiing tours!
In the meantime, kids can let off steam in the hotel´s own mini-gym, face adventures in the wood-activity-climbing world, or wind down a little in the in-house cinema. By the way, you are welcome to bring along your four-legged friend – the facilities and staff are absolutely dog-friendly! If you feel like a swim or just want to have bathing fun: off to the open-air swimming pool or the Murau indoor swimming pool! Guests of the JUFA Hotel enjoy free access. Don´t miss an exciting visit to the Murau beer brewery.
Subsequently, we recommend a stop at one of the many guest houses of the district – the regional cuisine is a treat to see and taste!
Due to the current situation of the circulating virus COVID-19 we decided to close the JUFA Hotel until May 15, 2020.

Murau Castle was first mentioned in historical documents in 1250. The original building used to be located south east of where the castle now stands. The Renaissance castle we see today was built during the 17th century, but it did not have its tower at this point. Among the many other points of interest, it is definitely worth visiting the chapel, the old kitchen and the Rittersaal (Knight’s Hall) with its tapestries. TIP: Special tours for children are offered on specific dates.
