Stage 07 Mur Bike Path Leibnitz - Bad Radkersburg

Welcome to the last stage in Austria along the Mur. It leads us from Leibnitz in the south of Styria through fields and riparian forests with opportunities for trips to the vineyards in the romantic spa town of Bad Radkersburg right on the border with Slovenia.



There's one question when starting in Leibnitz and the neighboring Flavia Solva: Do you have time for a little history lesson? Flavia Solva is the only Roman town in Styria. Emperor Vespasian founded it in AD 70. Like most Roman cities, Flavia Solva was built in rectangular blocks. The courtyards faced inward. The streets were laid out around a forum, making right angles in all directions. An amphitheatre also stood in the city on today's Mur Bike Path. It was the Germanic peoples who reduced the unfortified city to rubble and ashes. Then there was a martial up and down. In the first years of the fifth century, the Goths finally succeeded in finally destroying the thriving metropolis. Also worth seeing on this stage of the trip is Castle Spielfeld, which rises majestically from the riparian forest. Silence and rare plant and animal species. Just stop and take a deep breath, dare to jump into the lake Röcksee and finally visit and learn to love Bad Radkersburg. As a special tip, visit the Genussregal (Enjoyment Shelf) with the Vinofaktur (wine shop) in Ehrenhausen!
