The Murradweg is known among enthusiasts as Austria's most beautiful river bike path. From the  National park Hohe Tauern over Graz, the Cultural Capitol of Europe 2003, the bike path winds through the wine and spa region of  the trijunction of Austria, Hungry and Slovenia. As diverse as the landscape, so extraordinary are the experiences and destinations worth discovering. In the north the mountains are meadows of trees with lakes as their companions. Not far from the vineyards of southern Styria in the south stretch out fields of corn, fields of the typical Styrian oil pumpkin and extensive flood plains.
Knittelfeld lies directly on this route.
