Welcome to Hochsteiermark

From the Semmering to the Eisenerz Alps

The Hochsteiermark is located between the Styrian side of the mountain Semmering, the Hochschwab area, and the Eisenerz Alps. The tourism region is located in the districts Bruck an der Mur, Mürzzuschlag, Leoben and in parts of the district of Liezen. Alpine and imposing mountain ranges, refreshing water sources, gentle alpine pastures, green forests and a unique flora and fauna. The mountain Hochschwab in the heart of the region is one of the regions in Europe with the biggest amount of chamois. Doesn’t matter if a beautiful hiking tour, a cycling tour on the wonderful cycle paths along the river Mur, a rafting on the Styrian river Salza or a visit at the lake Grüner See, which is the most beautiful place in Austria or the home of the poet Peter Rosegger - the Waldheimat. The untouched nature will impress romantics, people who are in love and people who enjoy life.

Unique experiences you will have also at the pilgrimage paths in the region Hochsteiermark. During your way you will pass the pilgrimage cross in St. Barbara im Mürztal in the village Veitsch and you will also pass popular pilgrimage churches. The path leads you to Mariazell to the basilica- the famous Magna Mater Austriae.
It is also the destination for bons vivants, romantics, summer residents and for those who long for a break. The combination of urban infrastructure, mining and steel technology and unspoiled nature - life is worth living in Hochsteiermark - heart warming and authentic!
