St. Michael i.O.

Surrounded by the Eastern Alps St. Michael is located at 596 m above sea level in the heart of Styria at the estuary of the Liesing in the river Mur. The municipality has a surface area of 56 km² and consists of the districts Brunn, Greith, Liesingtal, Vorderlainsach, Hinterlainsach, Jassing and St. Michael. Many discoveries prove that Celts as well as Illyrians and Romans have settled in this area. In the 19th century iron production was of major importance for the community.

St. Michael is a popular tourist destination due to its pleasant climate. The inhabitants of the small community are proud of their traditions, very hospitable and like to share their idyllic homeland with their guests.

Besides a wide variety of sports (e.g. the river Mur cycling trail leads through St. Michael), visitors can explore the cultural and scenic sights of Styria starting in St. Michael.

    Farmers Museum
  • Farmers museum
    A point of special interest is the farmers’ museum in Vorderlainsach right in the centre of HerzBergLand. A result of time-consuming and painstaking work, Franz and Josefa Haberl have created an extraordinary museum of agricultural history in a farmhouse that is 300 years old. The collection consists of furniture, commodities and worktools that were used by farmers in former days. Tools and equipment for lumberjacks, rafter and hunters complete the scenery.
    The museum is open from April to October and can be visited upon prior notification (personal or by telephone).
