Nature in the City of Kornmess

From the city center to the Nature Conservation Center

If ever a city was able to say that its center and a tranquil Nature Conservation Center are adjacent to one another, that city must be Bruck an der Mur.  It's just a 10-minute walk from the historic city center over the new bridge spanning the river Mur to the Weitental Nature Conservation Center and its own one-of-a-kind wildlife sanctuary. You can even hear the foxes and brown owls bidding each other good night in a rural idyll. Yes Weitental is the perfect starting point for hiking tours, Nordic walking tours and walking tours just outside the gates to the City of Kornmess.

The city is just the place to start your hiking adventure in Styria, whether you choose to explore Rennfeld Mountain and its fabulous panorama, Madereck Mountain as the local's best insiders' tip or the Bärenschützklamm Gorge, the Hochschwab Mountain Range with Green Lake and Peter Rosegger's woodland home, they are all as close as can be to Bruck an der Mur. The hiking trails throughout the region will delight you. And cycling along the Mur und Mürz rivers in Styria lets bikers experience of the region's scenic beauty.
