Bad Radkersburg and its surrounding area

Bad Radkersburg, a town in the south-eastern part of Austrian Styria, lies at the Mura bank, just opposite the Slovenian side with the town of Gornja Radgona. The sunny town of Bad Radkersburg gets as many as 1930 hours of sunlight per year.

At the main square, the town hall with its Gothic tower  is surrounded by three-storey buildings which used to belong to rich merchants and nobility. Across from the town hall, one can find the Pistor House, one of the oldest houses in town; the basement of this establishment features valuable frescos by painter Johannes Aquila. The town, which is great for romantic walks, is well-known for its thermal mineral water.

Near Bad Radkersburg lies a village of Mureck (Slovenian: Cmurek), which is one of the centres of Slovenian culture in the Austrian Styria. When in Cmurek, you can visit the Cmurek Castle or the floating mill on the Mura river – one of the last preserved mills of its kind in the central Europe.

The near-by Bad Gleichenberg offers an amazing Styrassic Park with more than 80 live-size sculptures of dinosaurs, which is great fun for children. As the names of the villages suggest (i.e. the German word Bad meaning spa), the area is full of thermal springs (Thermenland).
