The electric bikes are trekking bikes made by Dema. The bikes are suitable for asphalted and maintained gravel paths and are not suitable for “off-road” riding. The motor offers 50Nm of torque and helps to reach speeds of up to 25 km/h. The bike has 9 mechanical gears and 9 levels of motor assistance. With combined and adapted riding, a range of up to 100 km is possible. You also get a battery charger and a bike lock when you hire the bike.


From Podsreda Castle, you can walk or cycle along the marked and easily accessible castle road, which leads all the way to the Holy Mountains above Bistrica ob Sotli. The idyllic route, which is just over nine kilometers long, follows the shady ridge of the Orlice hills, offering magnificent views of the Bistrica valley, the Bistrica ob Sotli gorge, and the town of Bistrica ob Sotli.

An excellent idea for a longer cycling trip is the circular Orans Cycle Route, which connects the most interesting natural and cultural attractions in the wider area of Podsreda Castle. The circular route starts in Bistrica ob Sotli and passes by Podsreda Castle, but if you prefer, you can start and finish it at our castle. The Orans Cycle Route is just under 40 km long and is suitable for recreational cyclists (mountain bike recommended); it also offers 3 shortened versions (10 km / 24 km / 33 km) ideal for families.

All cycling enthusiasts will be delighted by one of the most famous cycling routes in the area, the Kozjanski Circuit, which extends for 52 kilometers and covers 503 meters of elevation gain. It’s a cycling trip that will require a bit more cycling stamina, but the effort will be rewarded with beautiful views and a variety of attractions to brighten up your cycling day.

The Slovenian Touring Cycling Trail (24: Brežice – Podsreda Castle – Bohor) also passes by the castle and takes you from the center of Brežice through Pečice to Podsreda Castle and then to the top of Bohor – to the Bohor Cottage.
