Celje cottage is part of the Posavje hills. The area defines six distinct peaks and four valleys. The peaks are Tolst (834 m above sea level), Ramanco (781 m above sea level), Vipota (532 m above sea level), Grmada (718 m above sea level), Bavč (692 m above sea level), and Srebotnik (700 m above sea level). The Pečovnik valley with the Pečovniški potok spreads between Tovst, Grmado and Vipoto. The whole area is intertwined with marked mountain trails.
Hiking trails are suitable for families, individuals or recreation. Depending on your fitness and the time available, you can:
- Climb to Grmada, where you will find a bell of desire,
- take the Tolst Peak to the idyllic village of Svetina, where you can see the Church of Mary of Snow and the Church of the Holy Cross. On the local cemetery rests the famous Celje traveler and writer Alma M. Karlin,
- descend through the gorge called the Devil's valley, which runs along and down the Devil's stream. The trail is extremely interesting because, with the help of pins and cables, you can drop down along the streams where you can see many waterfalls.
- Visit the Old Castle of Celje, which once represented the largest fort in Slovenia,
- in Pečovnik, on the outskirts of the city, at the beginning of the footpath leading to the Celje cottage there is the house of Alma M. Karlin, in which she spent her last years living with her friend. In it, you can see an exhibition titled "Alone M. Karlin's lonely journey."
- or you can take a look at the town of Celje where you can visit a museum, gallery, castle or manor at every turn and of course many other cultural attractions.
The Celje cottage is also a long-standing destination for cyclists, but it is also the starting point for more or less demanding cycling trips and tours along the Kozjansko hill. Each recreationalist can choose the complexity of the route depending on his readiness and skills.
