In close proximity to the hotel, you find unspoiled floodplain forest areas with alders, willows and elms. The snowdrops that transform the forest floor into a sea of white in February, and the ramsons, whose characteristic garlic smell spreads through the forest in May, are particularly special.
Due to the diverse networks of different biotopes within a small geographical area, you meet many different groups of animals within the Mur floodplains. Consequently, this area has proven itself to be an important refuge for threatened animal species. There is also an abundant birdlife that includes, for example, the kingfisher and the black stork. The floodplains play an important role as a resting and sleeping place for migratory birds, such as the cormorant, which finds its way here each year as a faithful winter visitor.
"Antenne Flusslandschaft" (Antenna Riverscape)
The "Antenne Flusslandschaft" is a branch of the "Museum im Alten Zeughaus" (Museum in the Old Armoury) of Bad Radkersburg. The so-called antennas are intended to demonstrate the interdependence between people, their life and culture and the environment from a historic and contemporary perspective. Visitors are thus encouraged to be aware of the beauty of the town of Bad Radkersburg and its surroundings. The Mur River lies at the centre of the "Antenna Flusslandschaft". Over centuries, it represented the lifeblood of the lower Mur valley, continually shaped the landscape of the area, and formed the basis for the economic development of this region.
