One extraordinary experience is a trip through the Fala hydroelectric power station. You can also swap your bike for a raft and drift down as far as Maribor, Rafting City 2012. After about 85 km, the valley widens, and you reach the destination of this stage: Maribor. Europe's Capital of Culture 2012, a pulsating university city, and regional centre by day and night. The ambience of this Drau city is unique and peppered with sights such as the cathedral, town hall square, castle and the many beautiful bridges over the Drau. A special highlight on the banks of the Drau: the oldest grapevine in the world, which also makes Maribor a well-known wine and culinary city. A raft, boat, or stand-up paddle trip on the Drau is also recommended. You can't get closer to the soul of the river than this.
