STYRIAN IRON TRAIL – New long-distance hiking trail in the Erzberg-Leoben region
10 stages | 200 kilometres | 9000 metres of altitude hiking in Styria

Go far, sleep well!

The Hotel Kongress is a hotel partner at the main square of Leoben and warmly welcomes all long-distance hikers at the trail's destination!

The region ERZBERG-LEOBEN can be wonderfully explored on foot since August 2022, perfectly signposted and marked. Starting from St. Michael i.O., the new long-distance hiking trail leads along the Liesing Valley to Wald am Schoberpass for the first few days. A total of 14 communities of the adventure and sports region lie "along the way". Numerous accommodation partners along the trail are happy to look after the well-being of ambitious long-distance hiking fans. The snack box available at the starting point - filled with delicacies from the „GenussReich“-Partners – ensures that the forces never run out on the way.

The first three stages are ideal for "breaking in", before 4 challenging days of hiking via Radmer, Eisenerz, the Sonnschienalm and Tragöß to Vordernberg. The final 3 stages are from Trofaiach to Niklasdorf and finally over our local mountain, the Mugel.

The mining town of Leoben is the perfect trail conclusion and invites weary hikers to stay another night after reaching their self-set goal. Relaxation in the AsiaSpa, shopping in the LCS or a visit to an event make you fit again for your next adventure after the exertions.
The start and end points of the Styrian Iron Trail are both ideally accessible by train. The return journey from Leoben to the starting point in St. Michael (perhaps to reach the vehicle parked there) is also completed in a few minutes by train.

A cosy single or double room (with air conditioning on request) awaits tired but happy trail graduates at the Hotel Kongress. To replenish the electrolytes you have sweated out, the Arkadenhof - Leoben's oldest brewery pub - serves you a freshly tapped glass of GÖSSER beer. After a relaxing night, no wishes remain unfulfilled at the breakfast buffet and you save 20% on admission to the AsiaSpa wellness oasis. In addition, our team will be happy to help you organise your transport to the starting point of the STYRIAN IRON TRAIL.

What to wait for? START!
The path is created as you walk and we are already looking forward to congratulating you on your success at the end of this special journey!
