The district capital is the centre of the region. Lovers of culture
appreciate the historical townscape and the "Murauer
Schloßkonzerte" castle concerts. Museums, exhibitions and
walks in the historical town centre evoke the times of the
Schwarzenberg and Liechtenstein dynasties. Murau is an important
centre for Nordic winter sports; worldcup-events regularly take
place here. Since the provincial exhibition "Holzzeit" (time for
wood) Murau has put further emphasis on the topic.
Among the sights of the region are the museum of local history and
culture, the diocesan museum, Schloß Obermurau castle , the
St. Matthäus parish church and the museum of brewing.
