Cycling may be one of the best ways to tour Maribor, a great base for exploring the surrounding area and conquering Pohorje Mountains.
Get out of town with these interesting Maribor side-trips: Celje (Celje National Hall & Celje Castle), Green Gold Beer Fountain (in Žalec) and Ptuj (Ptuj Castle, Orpheus Monument, &more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Old Vine House, contemplate the long history of Terme Ptuj, take in the dramatic natural features at Pyramid Archaeological Site, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
