The Mur and floodplain landscape in the south of Styria
The Bad Radkersburg region is ideal for both amateur and professional cyclists to explore on two wheels. Be it by the usual bicycle or an e-bike - kilometres of signposted cycle paths offer the perfect opportunity to explore the region.
Especially the Mur and floodplain landscape of the Bad Radkersburg region offers everything a cyclist's heart desires. It forms a very characteristic part of the region's landscape and is characterised by a special richness of flora and fauna.
In the immediate vicinity of the city there are unspoilt alluvial forest areas with alders, willows, elms and much more. Especially worth mentioning are the snowdrops, which cover the floodplain landscape in February, and the wild garlic, which in May spreads a garlic scent in the region around the Mur and floodplain landscape.
Due to the diverse network of different biotopes in a very small area, numerous animal groups can also be found in the area of the Mur and floodplain landscape. The bird life is particularly varied here with rare bird species such as the kingfisher, black stork and others.
