The traditional Hop Trail Hike starts at the Eco-Museum of Hop-Growing and Brewing Industry in Slovenia on the last Saturday in August at 8 PM. At the start, participants will be greeted by the hop elder and the hop princess, the two symbolic figures in the hop-growing tradition.
The approximately 14km-long flat trail first takes us to the Novo Celje mansion, then it takes a turn through the hop fields and to the Vrbje pond, continuing its course along the Savinja River to Šempeter and the Roman Necropolis, which you can also tour. The trail then returns back towards Žalec and ends at the Eco-Museum of Hop-Growing and Brewing Industry in Slovenia.
In 2011, the Hop Trail was selected as the second best themed trail in Slovenia.
This year all the hikers are invited to join us on Saturday, 27th August 2016 at 8 AM at the Eco-Museum of Hop-Growing and Brewing Industry in Slovenia.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
