In the north-east of Styria lies the Mürzer Oberland, surrounded by the 2,000 metre high mountain peaks of the Rax, Schneealpe and Veitsch. Extensive forests, alpine pastures, deep river valleys and the limestone mountains characterise this natural and cultural landscape along the upper Mürz valley. The Mürz rises here from two springs north of the Schneealpe and flows southeast past the summer residence and second official residence of the Federal President in Mürzsteg, past Neuberg an der Mürz Abbey and finally leaves the Mürzer Oberland Nature Park near Mürzzuschlag. In addition to many natural sights (natural jewels), there are also buildings that contribute to the cultural life of the region. Special features: Cultural landscape: Alpine river valleys, forests and mountain pastures in the eastern foothills of the Alps. Historically once dominated by the iron industry, mining and forestry, today a region committed to sustainable tourism, with forestry still playing an important role. Key themes: Biodiversity, climate protection, forest, alpine pasture management, hunting and forestry, spring water protection, visitor guidance Lead product: Forest honey
