It only takes 10 minutes by gondola to get to another world – to Mount Trebević, Sarajevo’s local mountain, both a curse and a blessing. It helped the city win the Winter Olympics – and at the same time, enemy snipers were positioned here during the siege!
We meet at Sarajevo’s town hall, where you can already hear the first exciting facts about the city, its siege and its unbroken spirit. Then we set off together to the cable car that takes us up to Trebević.
Before heading to the old bobsleigh track of the Winter Olympics, we walk to one of the most beautiful viewpoints over Sarajevo and through the fragrant coniferous forest to Hotel Pino – here you have the opportunity to grab a coffee if you like.
The walk continues, and soon we reach the old bobsleigh track. Lined by excited spectators in 1984, now only a ruin remains. Graffiti artists and tourists alike have immortalized themselves on the concrete walls. We walk along the old bobsleigh track, down the hill, and you have plenty of time to examine the graffiti artwork.
At the end of the old bobsleigh track, a second lost place awaits us, from where you have a wonderful view of the city of Sarajevo, which is literally at your feet! Afterwards, we continue downhill on gravel paths. We reach the first houses on the outskirts of the city, walk through village streets and finally arrive at the end of our hike: A typical Bosnian restaurant with a wonderful view over Sarajevo.
Here you can simply sit down after the hike, enjoy the view with a cold drink and let the impressions sink in. Afterwards, you can return to the city by taxi or on foot – don’t worry, we will either organize transport for you or show you the way on foot (about 15 minutes) back to our starting point, the city hall.
