Culture
Great authors and artists like e.g. Peter Rosegger (author of folk literature) and Johannes Brahms (our great musician) are our region's leading personages.

You may discover their work and their era in many memorials and museums, established in their memory.

Mürzzuschlag as the 'cradle' of winter sports shows many interesting exhibits in connencion with this subject in its Winter!Sport!Museum!. The SÜDBAHN Museum concerns itself mainly with the construcion of the World Heritage Semmering Railway. The kunsthaus muerz is specialised in contemporary art.

Many cultural events are well-known and very popular far beyond the region: Rosegger Week, Rosegger hikes based on his famous stories around christmas and 'Jakob der Letzte' - an open air theatrical performance on the ground of Rosegger's  birthplace;

the International Brahms Festival in Mürzzuschlag, Magic of Art and Gardens respectively Magical Advent in the picutresque Castle Pichl, the Advent Gala organized by the Rosegger Association in Krieglach, just to mention a few.
