Outdoor activities

By bike

In all major tourist destinations, including Zagreb, the tour of the city can often be stressful, that is rushed in order to be able to visit all the sights and locations. But why should you follow the pace of sightseeing dictated by large groups and tour guides when you are a more flexible option like bike renting? For our guests of Astra Urban Garden, free bicycles are available, which you can easily pick up at any time of the day in the underground garage of the building, just behind the parking space of the apartment.

There is also an app called Nextbike: download it on your mobile phone and use it to rent a bike. Activation is 40,49€, and this amount can be used for subsequent bike rentals. Just make sure you get your bike back on time. If you do not return it within 24 hours, you will be charged an additional 99,54€. You can also join a cycling tour around the city and visit all the important sights accompanied by a local guide.

You can also explore the city on an orange bicycle. Choose between the “Classic Zagreb” or “Back 2 Socialism” tour, and the tour price includes a local tourist guide, city bike, helmet (optional), water bottle, coffee during the break (refreshing drinks for children), photo from the tour and insurance. The tour lasts three hours, and the starting point is in front of Bike Tours Zagreb – Jurišićeva Street 19/1 Rotonda centre (basement).

By foot

If you are more inclined to sightseeing on foot, we recommend several hiking trails to climb Medvednica, all the way to the mountain top Sljeme, which is a favourite recreation for both tourists and locals. At the top, your prize awaits you in the form of local traditional specialties and a view of the city that takes your breath away. In addition to the climb to Medvednica, there are many other hiking and running trails in Zagreb or in the immediate vicinity.

In the city centre there is an offer of various city tours, and for gastronomic lovers the Zagreb Gourmet Walking Tour is especially interesting, with departures (obligatory announcement 48 hours before departure) every day at 10:00 during the whole year. Language: French, English, Italian, German.
