Above picturesque village of Mitterbach, beautiful Gemeindealpe Hill is rising (1626 metres above sea level). At its slopes, ski resort is open for public during winter months. Its name joins the name of the hill with a name of the village, where low station of seat rope railway is to be found. From the top (two seat rope railways could take you upstairs) you can enjoy phantastic panorama outlook towards wide environs of Voralpen. Not far from Mitterbach, at the border among Styria and Lower Austria, only four kilometres distant from Mariazell - shrine, glacier Erlaufsee Lake could be found (in an altitude of 827 metres above sea level). This mountain lake, with transparently pure water, offers many possibilities for spending of leisure time. So, in summer, it is bathing, fishing or diving. Around whole lake, the tourist path is leading, ideal for summer walks as well as for winter ski running. In winter, the lake is freezing quickly, as (at low sun-shines) it is situated in a shadow of surrounding hills, so, the locality becomes a popular target for ice skating lovers.

Small town of Mariazell belongs to most important shrines (places of pilgrimage) of Central Europe. Anyway, Mariazell is also mountain balneologic spa at the same time. Close to this locality, popular ski resort is situated there, and it is, thanks to its easy accessibility, visited by skiers from Czech Republic as well as from Slovakia.
Despite we have visited well-known Austrian town of Mariazell many times, only recently we have managed to come in the time the basilica was opened. Thus, we have visited this jewel of pilgrimage from the inside.
The tiny town of Mariazell, which is the most famous pilgrimage site in Austria and one of the largest in Central Europe, we visited for the first time. Like other years, we set out to Austria for a few days, again. We enjoyed a great skiing and a bit of a rest from everyday worries.
Winter is here again. For some, it is perhaps too cold and harsh, but to me it is the most popular season of the year. Everything is hidden under a fluffy white blanket of snow and acts somewhat calmer, and even cleaner than the rest of the year. It is also a time of winter holidays in the mountains, meeting with friends over a glass of mulled wine or it is a time of a great cabbage soup, which will warm you up in this season.
We stay in Styria even today. Previously we introduced you Murtal, a recreation region and Hochsteirn. Today we look in the capital of Styria, Graz that is also the largest city in the region. We will also give you few tips for trips.
The recreation area of Murtal is located on west from Graz, Styria. There are peaks of the Hohe Tauern, Zirbitzkogel, Seetal and Seckau Alps as well as the hilly Nockberge Mountains.
Hochsteiermark covers the area from StyrianSemmering to the Hochschwab Mountains and further to the Eisenerz Alps. This mountainous land attract from the time immemorial not only the Austrians but also visitors from other countries to do trips in beautiful and sometimes wild nature.
The winter season is in full swing and we are glad we have prepared for you the fifth interesting catalogue that will, hopefully, inspire and help you with your choosing of the most ideal place for your winter vacation.
