Experience Leoben actively: Culture and Action

Explore Upper Styria and the Erzberg-Leoben region with your temporary home – the Hotel Kindler 2.0


Cycling tours & mountain biking

Bring your bike!

Relaxed cycling on the Murradweg R2, mountain biking around Leoben, speeding down into the valley on the newly opened Massenburg Trail or chasing times on the pump track in Hinterberg – Leoben has the right surface for every type of bike!

The Hotel Kindler 2.0 is located directly on the Murradweg R2, just a few minutes from the MTB routes and the trail,

If required, we can arrange suitable e-bikes from our rental partner. All bikes are safely parked in our bike shed.

The wild mountain of Mautern

The wild mountain offers reduced prices for school classes and groups and great programs such as guided tours, puzzle rallies or project days. In the wildlife park, you can watch bears and foxes being fed or be amazed by the animal acrobats at the flight show.

You can return to the valley on the summer toboggan run or on a mountain kart! The best way to get to Wilden Berg Mautern is by train, the Wildpark Shuttle takes you from the station directly to the valley station.

Erzberg adventure

Abenteuer Erzberg combines active mining above ground with former mining underground and at the same time provides a glimpse into the future. The largest cab in the world will take you up the mountain with 1,217 horsepower and is sure to be the highlight of your trip. You could also explore the labyrinth underneath the mountain or experience a live blast as 80,000 tons of rock are blown up!

On selected dates, a special Erzbergbahn train will take you to the Erzberg adventure. The Hauly picks you up directly from the station!

Adventure tours in Leoben

Go on a murder hunt with your cell phone on the Leoben Crime Trail, hike up the Massenburg with torches or discover Leoben with Sophie the Guide on the city rally.

No matter what you decide – you’ve certainly never discovered a city like this before!

These activities all start directly at the hotel. You are on foot in Leoben and the experiences last approx. 2 hours.

Alpacas at the Green Lake

Grab your llama or alpaca and explore the nature around the Green Lake with it and your classmates. If even Hollywoo star Aston Kusher was completely blown away, you’re sure to love it too!

Group hikes:
Friday, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays (during the vacations also during the week)

Hikes for large groups (e.g. for company outings, team building, club outings, school classes, etc.): Monday to Sunday possible on request.

Distance from the hotel :

Le Bootshaus

You want to drift down the Mur River by boat or experience some action while discovering the river? Le Bootshaus is the right place to go to! It offers all kinds of aquatic sport – like Patschnasstours, Stand-Up Paddle courses or the CO2 free Greentour and adventure tours that last multiple days. You may also have great fun on the MEGA SUP or party events complete with snacks on the water.

At the end of the tour, the ultimate group challenge awaits you. The jump from the station bridge into the cold water will weld you together forever and remain in your memories forever!

And that’s just to name some great things you can try out in Le Bootshaus. Just drop by and choose your next adventure.

ALPFOX Adventure Park

Experience pure adrenaline in the adventure park at Präbichl!
16 climbing routes and 9 ziplines offer challenges for beginners and pros. The Flying Fox over the Grüblsee lake is a particular highlight. Enjoy the panoramic lake view and push yourself to your limits at dizzying heights.

Do you prefer to stay down to earth?
Then explore your downhill skills in the bike arena (with rental) or your skills on the eTrail motorcycle. A rapid descent on a mountain kart rounds off the action-packed day.

Distance from the hotel:
by bus approx. 35 min (allow more time for a public journey)

JUNGES Museum in the Kulturquartier Leoben

At workshops and creative workshops for school classes or groups at the Young Museum Leoben, children between the ages of 6 and 14 can learn new things and try out old ones. A great offer for school classes, but also for other groups who would like to experience something together.

On request, the workshops can also be adapted to upper school level. (https://kulturquartier.leoben.at/) (Kulturquartier, 3 minutes walk from the hotel)

We would be happy to put together a customized package for your group excursion/school trip/class trip/polter round including Overnight stay, meals and supporting program.
