The trail goes on the old wine transport routes, that where made and used by the monk order of the Trappists (the order was known for their winemaking, fariming, cheese making...)
During the 4h long walk, you will visit the cultural sights of Brestanica along the recreational hiking trail. The trail begins at the square below the Church of St. Peter and Paul and takes you to Turn Castle, Sotelsko, Sremič, Grmada, Church of St. Hermagoras, Church of St. Mary of Lourdes (one of the largest churches in Slovenia) and at the end, Castle Rajhenburg, the home of the Trappists from 1881 to 1941.
The order of the Trappists came from France, and was known for their strict discipline. But they were also good, knowledgable winemakers, farmers, agriculture experts and later even chocolatiers. In the short period of time that they were present in the region, their activities heavily influenced the area and its economy. Did you there is even cheese named after them, the Trapist?
That is way this trail was created, to remember and reflect, in the company of good food and wine obviously :)
On the trail you will find the hostel, owned by the former Olyimpc medalist Primož Kozmus. The Trapist cheese can be bought in almost every market.
Some of the trails goes along the roads, so caution is advised.
Sport shoes and backpack will be enough, for this trail.
You can also rent electric bicycles, and do the trail with them.
