Shortly after Lavamünd you cross the border into Slovenia and reach the town of Dravograd, which is still shaped like a medieval market. After an ascent you will reach the lovely Bukovje Castle. On the way you can try honey at beekeepers before you have to climb a steep incline. Further downstream you reach Fala with its hydroelectric power station museum and finally the destination of your bike tour, the pretty district town of Maribor, which is located in a hilly wine region.
