Celje, surrounded by well-maintained trails and hills, is an excellent destination for leisure and experienced cyclists alike. Not only beautiful views but also many tourist attractions are accessible by bicycle. Take your bike and ride to Lake Šmartinsko jezero and enjoy a refreshing jump into the water. Spend your day among the Counts of Celje at the Old Castle, or head to Celjska koča. Replenish some of the energy with a homemade apple strudel, then choose your next adventure. From there, you can either go for an easier route or accept a bigger challenge, such as the Kozjansko hills. No appropriate equipment? Don’t worry. You can rent bicycles at Celjska koča in addition to the list of bike routes. Interactive mobile maps are also available there. For a unique experience and a stronger touch with the nature, use your bike to explore. While cycling, stop, breathe in some fresh air, rest on the grass, or enjoy a snack on one of the hills.
