Graz is the second largest city in Austria and has developed into a university city in recent years. Accordingly, the lifestyle in the third largest metropolitan region in Austria is relaxed. Numerous sights and nice restaurants, coffee houses and bars line the cityscape. Graz is an ideal starting point for mountain bike tours and has been the venue for mountain bike world and European championships several times.
Graz is located on both sides of the river "Mur" and is surrounded by the mountains of Graz. The Schöckl and the Plabutsch are the highest elevations on the outskirts of the city, which are also excellent for fun mountain bike tours. In addition, the Schlossberg and the Kalvarienberg are two elevations in the middle of the city.
The provincial capital is surrounded by numerous hills and elevations, which makes it an ideal mountain bike hot spot. Especially in spring - when many other mountains are still covered with snow - it is already good biking in Graz. On the Plabutsch and the Schöckl, moreover, created trails provide great pleasure. Graz is also a cultural and culinary highlight without equal.

Graz is not only a MTB highlight, but also a cultural and culinary highlight. If you are in Graz, you should definitely plan enough "off-bike" time.
