Wiener Schmäh, and Dolce Vita

snuggled up in a blanket or fluffy furs, sit the guests in front of the Local under the warmth of heaters and drink mulled wine. Although Ljubljana in 2016, was named to the "Green capital of Europe", while sitting Out in the environmental awareness to listen to but apparently.

there's nothing More to find fault but. Because Ljubljana (German: Laibach) is in terms of environmental protection in a pioneering city: The city center is blocked since 2008 for the car traffic. There are more than 2000 trees were planted, the water is clean. There is a Gratisvelo-rental system, the waste bags underground will be disposed of, on the road no Dirt lying around, and the houses are not smeared with Graffiti.

sausages, Kuhano Vino and steaming Sauerkraut

Also during the time of Advent well worth a visit. The old town, which extends on both sides of the river Ljubljanica, is the only Christmas market. Ess, Christmas, Souvenir and jewelry stands next to the other. No tree that would not light garlands adorned. Over the river and the places to hang Christmas lights in all colors. Especially in the evening when the city lights up in all colors, is worth a visit.

In the relatively small town you meet a lot of Austrians, Italians and Croats. The capital city of Slovenia, with its 290'000 inhabitants is located just a stone's throw from the three countries. They have left their traces in the Form of Wiener Schmäh, Italian Dolce Vita and the heart of the Balkans.

the focal point of the Christmas hustle and bustle is the Central square with the famous three bridges (near the triple bridge) to the great Slovenian architect Joze Plecnik (1872-1957). Here, frying, steaming and braising in the countless food stalls-sausages, Cevapcici, Sauerkraut and other delicacies. Rounding out the Meal with a glass of Kuhano Vino, a glass of mulled wine to 2 euros the glass.

the most beautiful are the Christmas stands are present along the market halls, which are reminiscent of Venetian palaces. Plecnik has made in the design of the city centre, all the work.

get Lost, the Tourist can not, the main axes for the pedestrians to follow the river.

In the old town, all attractions in walking distance are reachable. For disabled and older people, there is the Kavalir, a green electric car that can be stopped with a show of hands. Outside the traffic-calmed old town, there is a dense bus system. Can't get lost, the Tourist, since the two main axes for pedestrian to the river to follow. Countless Restaurants line the streets. Good food enjoyed in Ljubljana, a high priority.

If you have enough from the crowds that circulate in the narrow alleys and streets, it is worth to Ljubljaner castle (Ljubljanski Grad) high-rise. From the medieval fortress, has a magnificent view on the old town and the surrounding area. The spacious castle complex also includes museums and Restaurants.

trip to the caves of Postojna

A quiet place in the Tivoli Park, Ljubljana's green lung. This well-maintained English-style Park has a wide Avenue that leads to the homonymous castle. The Park is located slightly outside the old town, but in walking distance to the centre.

On a four-day advent journey, a day trip to the world famous caves of Postojna and the Predjama castle is possible. A trip is recommended. The Postojna cave is one of the largest cave systems in the world. Only a few kilometers from the cave away, the cave-Predjama castle is located. A robber-knight castle out of a fairy tale, which was built in a 120-Meter-high vertical rock wall. Castle Mr Erasmus Luegg met a robbery knight ignominiously death: He was slain on the way to the Latrine of a stone ball-and-missile – at least, this tells the legend.

Who can start with caves and robber barons, you should travel in the Alpine city of Maribor with its well-known ski resort or to the port city of Koper. Koper is the only seaport city on the 47 kilometre-long Slovenian Adriatic coast. Both destinations are a train or Bus easy to reach.

The trip was travel support from Vögele.
