At home in Lerchenfeld/ Mühltal

The district of Lerchenfeld was only developed in the past few decades and now offers many housing estates with council flats . A company site of the global logistics service provider Knapp Systemintegration is also located in Lerchenfeld.

In Lerchenfeld there are several small settlements with detached houses and a modern estate of terraced houses. There are plans to extend this town house complex. More flats and related infrastructure are under construction.


The district owes its name of Mühltal to the many mills that once dotted the banks of the river Mur (Mühle = mill). The ruins of Massenburg fortress are towering above Mühldorf and offer a great view of Leoben.
