The City of Kornmess and the most beautiful place in Austria
Just 25 short kilometers lie between one of the most splendid downtown areas in Styria (the green heart of Austria) and the most beautiful place in Austria. That’s how close Bruck an der Mur is to the Green Lake.
Starting out from the City of Kornmess by car, or taking a bike for a more idyllic journey on the Laming Valley Bike Path, you can reach the lake with ease. About 25 kilometers long and with a gentle slope, the cycling trail connects one of the most splendid downtown areas in Austria with this internationally appreciated natural treasure nestled at the foot of the Hochschwab mountain range. This lets you enjoy both the urban flair of life in Bruck an der Mur and the idyllic nature of Green Lake all in one relaxing vacation day. A leisurely hike around the lake can be followed by a stroll through the center of Bruck; you can even take a quick jaunt up to Bruck’s Castle Hill. Few regions in Styria can give you such attractions like Bruck and Green Lake do.
Attention: The entire area surrounding Green Lake, as well as Green Lake itself, is a strictly protected nature conservation area! Open fires, scuba diving and camping are strictly prohibited!
