As soon as the Drau has left Maribor, it flows in its natural form over the top field. The landscape has completely changed again, the river is no longer forced into the narrow gorge corset, but is looking for its way freely. The meanders, old arms and lakes are romantic on the one hand, on the other hand they also invite you to cool off in the cool water.After around 30 kilometers you will reach Ptuj, the oldest city in Slovenia. If the entire stage is almost 90 kilometers too long for you, you can best divide it here. Because on and in the lake of Ptuj various sports and recreational opportunities await you and you can relax in the thermal baths or enjoy a glass of wine in one of the many wine cellars.In Varaždin, which is already in Croatia, the last stage ends and with it the official Drau cycle path. The city is affectionately known as "Little Vienna" by the locals and offers a well-preserved, lively city center, a castle and beautiful parks as well as Baroque jewelery.
