Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Murau, Austria your home away from home

The Murau region of Austria is a fantastic activity sports centre in the heart of the Nock Mountains of Austria.

Family holidays are hugely popular, as crowds are thin, the terrain manageable and the locals extremely friendly.

Things to do in Murau, Austria

There are a great range of fantastic skiing resorts in Murau, offering fantastic alpine downhill skiing and snowboarding, as well as some gruelling cross-country skiing trails. Kreischberg is especially popular with snowboarders, and although there are some of Austria’s finest skiing and snowboarding resorts, Murau is often overlooked by European tourists. The ski resorts of Kreishberg, Turracher Hohe and Katschberg are magnificent, all complete with multi-lingual ski schools.

The spring and summer months sees the snow melt, and the alpine plains blossoming with the colour of thousands of flowers. The walking, mountain biking and climbing is particularly special, especially in the national parks of Nockeberge and Grebenzen, which are home to an amazing range of animals and birds. As the rivers begin to swell with the spring melt waters, fishermen flock to Murau accommodation to take advantage of the excellent fishing conditions. The River Mur is particularly spectacular, although some stretches are set aside for adrenaline fuelled white water rafting trips.

                                  Great Chalet Edelweiss experience

                                  5 of 5
                                  On arrival the chalet was immaculately clean and ready for our stay, within minutes the housekeeper arrived with a delivery of coffee for the pod machine, soon after the hot tub service manager arrived to make sure that the tub was in top class order, he also called two further times to make sure everything was ok. The chalet was as described on the website, it was obvious that care and attention had been given to the fixtures and furnishings, all very tasteful.Both bathrooms were well fitted out with good showers and an abundance of toiletries, very thoughtful. Outdoors the two sided terraced had lots of patio furniture and chairs, a lovely place to relax after a day of sightseeing and hiking. We used the hot tub every day a lovely wind-down before dinner. The upstairs bathroom has a large sauna, which looked well appointed but being a summertime visit we didn't make use of it. Stadl is a small village with more amenities than we originally thought, it even has an open air lido area but early June wasn't warm enough for us to make a visit. There is a small bakery and a Nah & Frisch supermarket which was very useful for our self catering needs also a very friendly hotel which serves good beer and food.. Murau is just a short drive away, a very nice town for strolling around, there are also many larger grocery stores for a more comprehensive shop, be sure to check out Hoffer (Aldi) for wines and spirits at very good prices, we loved the Austrian wine. We were very surprised how inexpensive Austria is compared with neighbouring Switzerland and many European destinations, we will definitely return. Booking and payments for the chalet were easy and very professional, thank you Debbie for making our stay memorable.

                                  Beautiful, well equipped and spotlessly clean chalet.

                                  5 of 5
                                  We had a fantastic week with wonderful hosts in a chalet that was perfect with amazing views. We had a pool we could use anytime and although we didn't use it there was a lovely sauna in the basement of the chalet. We would recommend this holiday for anyone looking for a quiet break or for those wishing to visit cities and return to the peace of the valley. There are mountain walks from the doorstep and streams in the valley. Perfect holiday.

                                  Wunderschöne Ferien für Mensch und Hund

                                  5 of 5
                                  Wir haben nun bereits zum dritten Mal unseren Jahresurlaub in der Kreischberg Lodge verbracht. Und auch in diesem Jahr war es wunderschön! Das gesamte Grundstück ist nun von einem Zaun umgeben. Für uns als Hundebesitzer absolut top. Nächstes Jahr allerdings noch besser, da unsere beiden kleinen Vierbeiner noch unter dem Zaun durchgekommen sind - dies wird sich aber nächstes Jahr von alleine gelöst haben ;-). Das Haus ist wunderschön und sehr gepflegt. Frau Tanner hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und hat uns alles Notwendige gezeigt und erklärt. In unseren 10 Tagen hatten wir mit dem Wetter leider nicht so viel Glück. Dennoch hat man in der Gegend sehr viele Möglichkeiten, sich trotzdem schöne Urlaubstage zu gestalten. Die Seen in der steirischen Krakau, usw. bieten sehr schöne Wanderrundwege und man kann die Ruhe und Natur einfach nur genießen. Für Wanderungen (mit oder ohne Hund) ein absoluter Traum! Wir kommen jedenfalls wieder! Vielen Dank an Frau Hickey für die reibungslose und unkomplizierte Abwicklung und auch ein herzliches Danke an Frau Tanner für den Empfang und die Pflege des Hauses!
