St. Barbara im Mürztal is situated at the pilgrimage trail 706 to Mariazell. It offers its guests and the pilgrims an intesified experience of 'pilgrimage'. This is where pilgrims and hikers meet art and nature.

Do not miss the Pilgrims' Mile in the centre of Mitterdorf, the Pilgrims' Path with a visit to Teichhütte, the Pilgrims' Park at the Castle Pichl and the Stations of the Cross.

Austria's largest climbing hall was established in Mitterdorf in 2012: the Climbers' Academy. It is the destination for climbing enthusiasts and the location of many contests. Another attraction is the adventure pool resort with seperate children's pool.



Following the valley of Veitsch, our first glance rests on the Hohe Veitsch massif and on the worldwide highest pilgrims' cross on the Ölberg. This walk-in wooden cross is situated on the crossing point of the major European long-distance trails and the Mariazeller Weg 06.

Veitsch offers a multitude of options, and not only in summer, for hikers and pilgrims. The skiing area Brunnalm-Hohe Veitsch offers ideal conditions for all skiing enthusiasts - from the beginners' course to the challenging 'black' ski run for racers. Brunnalm is also well-known and popular as a starting point for ski tours - and as a reward for the ascent, an unforgettable mountain panorama awaits you!

At the end of an active day of your summer - or winter holiday, the JUFA youth- and family guest house with its climbing hall, indoor pool and sauna area offers the suitable balance to remain active or to just take it easy and relax body and mind.
