Biketrip to Maribor

Thu, 2023-10-19 09:00 - 20:00

Join our day trip to Maribor - by bike! 

Three of our sporty ESN Graz team members have to attend an international ESN conference in Maribor from the 19th to 22nd of October - and decided to go there by bike. 

We’re now happy to invite you to come with us on this journey across borders and vineyards! Whilst our staff members will stay in Maribor, they will make sure that you have some time to explore the city and help you in buying your train tickets to get you and your bike back to Graz. 

19.10. - 9am

(we might start earlier/later based on the weather forecast, so please check your mails regularly).


We will meet up at the ESN Uni Graz office (Schubertstraße 6a), please be on time!


  • Distance: 80 km
  • Duration: ~6 hrs (based on speed/group size)
  • Approx. Costs: ~20€ (for the train ticket, if you have no ÖBB Vorteilsclub Card)

Whilst the ESN staff will stay in town for a conference, they will buy the right train tickets with you so you do not have to cycle back to Graz. Instead, you’ll have time to explore Maribor and see for yourself why it is called sLOVEnia!


Packing List
Please do not forget to bring:

  • Enough Snacks & Drinks
  • Warm Clothing
  • A rain jacket

Why join?
Why not? Amazing stories and slovenian wine are awaiting you once you have crossed the border.

What if I do not have a bike?
We would highly recommend every exchange student to get a bike for their time in Graz! If you feel like you do not need one - ask the ESN team for help. We are happy to suggest some bike rental places!

What if it rains?
