Graz, the capital of Styria in the heart of Austria, offers historical sights, cultural highlights and a vibrant culinary scene. The city and its surroundings are a true paradise for cycling enthusiasts – you’ll find both a well-developed network of cycle paths and a breathtaking landscape. This makes Graz and its surroundings perfect for exploring on two wheels.
The Mur Cycle Path winds through the city and along the river. It’s one of the most popular cycle paths in and around Graz and offers a picturesque backdrop for a relaxing bike Tour. Along the way, you'll find historical buildings, modern architecture and green parks. You don't have to ride for a whole day as you’ll find plenty of culture, architecture and green oases on shorter Tours too, such as the Old Town Ring, the Ragnitz and Leonhard Brooks or on a trip to the Hilmteich.
A good network of cycle paths and the cultural and scenic diversity make the region a perfect cycling destination. With your folding bike, you’ll explore urban centres and rural landscapes.
