About Leoben

Having a close location to the Mur River in the central Styrian region of Austria, Leoben is a city with a population of approximately 25 thousand people. Accepted as the center of the industrial and mining sectors of Austria, Leoben is also known as the "Gateway to the Styrian Iron Road". You can start touring the city from the main square which is home to the Hackl House with red and white baroque facade. The church named St. Francis Xavier, which was built in 1660, has an interior decoration dating back to the 17th century and is accepted as one of the most important Jesuit churches in Austria. We also recommend you to visit the Art Nouveau Lutheran Church located on the Franz-Josef-Strasse.

The Goesser Braumuseum, which is a brewery museum located next to the monastery named Göss Abbey, founded in 1020, will undoubtedly be one of the unforgettable stops of your trip. Concerts usually take the first place among the culture and art events that take place in Leoben in certain periods. Throughout the year, classical music concerts are organized at Leoben Congress, and Summer Philharmonic's music performances take place in July. If you visit the region in this period, you can join the Gosser Kirtag street fair which welcomes a great number of tourists from all over the world every year. In order to discover all corners of Leoben, which also comes to the forefront with its proximity to regions such as Graz and Wiener Neustadt, you should plan at least a 3-day travel.

You can join a guided tour to see the ruins of Massenburg Castle, which is located on a hill and whose history dates back to the 13th century. It is a short walk away from Leoben city center. You should definitely see the medieval tower called Schwammerlturm, which is one of the most famous structures in Leoben that has been standing for thousands of years. By getting to the top of the tower, you can see both Mur River and Leoben city center as well as Hauptplatz and Homanngasse. It is quite easy to reach the top by using the elevator inside the tower, which draws attention with its eye-catching dome, whitewashed walls and red bricks. The Lavanttal Alps, which cover Austria and Slovenia, are essentially part of the Middle Eastern Alps extending between the rivers Mur and Drava. The highest point of the Lavanttal Alps, which is about an hour and 45-minute drive away from Leoben, has a height of 2000 meters. You can discover the climbing and hiking trails in this region as well as adding Graz and Klagenfurt to your route. The monument of Pestsaule Leoben, which is located on the city square (Hauptplatz) and dates back to the Middle Ages, draws attention with its admirable design.
