Although Maribor is considered as the city of wine, after all, on Lent grows the oldest vine in the world and the surrounding hills are covered with vineyards, in the past the brewery activities were also very developed. Beer was welded in the very centre of the old town in the first half of the 18th century. City’s brewers were always most respected citizens, one of them even became the mayor.

We are fully aware, that during this walk, a person becomes thirsty, so we will stop several times and taste different types of beer.

DOWN AND UNDER
Under the surface, every city hides a completely different world, invisible, unknown, mysterious and sometimes scary to most of the people. But on the other hand, this underground makes people excited and develops imagination. In this underground Maribor citizens used to assemble motors for aircraft, hide from bombs, nourish wine, and in some places rock’n’roll is still played loud. All this and more will experience participants of the Down and Under tour.
Do not be afraid, be curious!

Where we can find water, we also can find life. The seas, lakes and rivers were always splitting and connecting places, cities, people at the same time. And Maribor is no exception. The river Drava was for many centuries the window into the world and rafting on woody boats played an important role in everyday life.
Participants of the Wet Path will gather at the Čolnarna Ruše and first try out the raft games. Afterwards, they will board the raft and will, accompanied by a life concert sail along the river Drava to the Lobik brewery. In addition to seeing and learning about beer welding processes, there will not be a lack of experience in tasting.
