Ski touring in the touring ski area Grebenzen

Ski tours for hobby tourer on the Grebenzen

The Grebenzen is especially popular for longer, as well as shorter ski tours. The huts along the way invite you to stop for a bite to eat.

Enjoy the Murau mountains

This is the place of longing for nature lovers. The Murau Kreischberg region is nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Nockberge and the alpine Niedere Tauern in Styria. For sports enthusiasts, connoisseurs and beginners, there are fantastic and varied tours around the picturesque town of Murau.

Slowly you draw your gentle tracks along the mountain slopes. Your thoughts concentrate on your breath and you leave your everyday worries behind. Well equipped, wrapped up like an onion and the skins on your touring skis, you listen intently to the crunching of snow under your feet.

Your tour will take you over cat-tracks, open meadow terrain and steep ridges through the deep snow-covered winter forest. The wind blows the snow from the snow-covered trees. You glide over open alpine meadows and step by step you get closer to your destination. Once you have arrived, the Murau mountains are at your feet. You unpack your snack and warm yourself with a cup of tea. Passing snow-covered trees and idyllic winter scenery, you whiz down to the valley. A refreshment, such as a Murauer wheat beer, is already waiting for you.
