Hiking holiday in the Murtal-Spielberg region
The market town of Seckau is situated offside the Styrian Murtal. Surrounded by the idyllic mountain world of the Seckau Alps, it is one of the area’s most popular hiking and excursion destinations for nature lovers. Holidaymakers can locate our JUFA Hotel Seckau/Spielberg*** in the charming town centre of Seckau, directly opposite Seckau’s famous Benedictine Abbey.
The modern and family-friendly facilities in the historical building ensure carefree stays for families and groups. The children can let off steam in the games room and on the large playground and make new friends. The adults are pampered in a classical spa and relax in a small, cosy sauna. Everyone must taste coffee and cake on the sun terrace or enjoy regional specialties in the hotel’s à la carte restaurant. A magnificent starry sky is the evening attraction and the pure mountain air attracts visitors to the outside – enjoy both with a glass of Styrian winemakers art!
Various hiking routes provide variety! Active visitors and families can choose among cosy hiking excursions, demanding ascents and professional climbing. Cycle routes, mountain bike routes, tracks and exciting motor sports action in the nearby Spielberg, extend the region’s exciting leisure options. During the winter, safe snow layers in the ski and snowboard area Gaal provide wonderful ski slopes in the middle of the impressive mountain scenery. The Styrian “Hüttengaudi” (hut fun) should of course not be forgotten – a stopover with a hearty snack strengthens body and soul!
Only a few kilometers away, the Aqualux Spa provides relaxation and fun. An impressive panoramic sauna and slides for water rats every age inspires young and old. Whoever feels like a shopping tour can visit the Arena at the near the forest field. Numerous shops and possibilities for bowling, billiards or cinema leave nothing to desire.
The world-famous Red Bull ring in Spielberg ensures sports recreation to real motor sports and off-road fans throughout the year. Even in the winter, you can enjoy exciting starts of ski-rollers, cross-country skiing and biathlon with laser guns, off-road buggies and winter enduros. Action and recreation – the Styrian Murtal region is a holiday recommendation for active outdoor enthusiasts looking for variety!
