Sometimes known as the gateway to the Styrian Iron Road, Leoben’s history is deeply entwined with the region’s mining heritage. The town’s university is still the most prominent in Austria for students wishing to study mining and metallurgy. As such, sights connected to Leoben’s industries dominate most visitors’ itineraries, particularly at the MuseumsCenter Leoben complex and the Radmer Paradeisstollen copper mine about an hour’s drive away. There are also more ancient places of interest, including the 17th-century Hacklhaus, the Church of Maria am Waasen dating back to the 12th century and the interesting early-Baroque Stadtpfarrkirche St. Franz Xaver.
