Bicycle Trail along the Mura

At times it seems that the Mura River region continues to live in perfect harmony with nature. The many natural features such as thermal springs and Murska pools are beautifully complemented by the trails, gardens and ponds that were created by human hands. Together, they represent the ideal scenario for a break from city life.

While riding through forests and passed meadows and wide open fields, you’ll soon encounter the animal world and quickly realise why storks have become a symbol of the area along the river.

MURA RIVER - RIGHT BANK

Are you interested in taking a cycling tour along the entire right bank of the Mura River in Slovenia, continuing the way to the meeting point of the Mura  and Drava River in Croatia?
You enter Slovenia in Trate, cycle through the border town of Gornja Radgona and relax in the health resorts Radenci or Banovci. After crossing the Croatian border, you continue the tour along the cycle paths to Legrad.

Would you like to cycle a part of the route from the Austrian border to Legrad in Croatia through the vine-covered hills, along cottages and tourist farms?
The course of the cycle route is planned to lead you also through the crests of the vineyards of Radgona and Kapela on the Slovenian side and the wine-growing region of Međimurje County on the Croatian side. The tour ends in Legrad.

Are you an adventurer and a nature lover?
We offer you the chance to ride a part of the route right next to the bank of the Mura River or along the marked routes of the Regional Park Mura-Drava. You begin your cycling tour in the Austrian town of Mureck and you cycle all the way through Slovenia on the right bank of the river. After crossing the Croatian border, you will get the chance to go off road.
