The old town of Leoben is located in a bend of the river Mur. With its impressive town houses and many sights it offers a very special atmosphere. The town’s landmarks Schwammerlturm, Hacklhaus, St. Xaver parish church, MuseumsCenter, and Leoben University are all just a few steps away from each other.

Life is bustling in Leoben, and the centre of it all is the pedestrian precinct near the main square, where bars, restaurants, shops, markets and numerous events invite you to take a stroll.
