I decided to walk up, which took quite a while, so if you are up for a challenge and have good company and time, then can be a nice walk up. Lovely trees on the way up, especially auburn during autumn. Definitely worth the visit... Including a church on the way up. Not much else on the way up.

We took tram 14 from the main square then the bus to the top for about £3 return. If I was doing it again I would hire a car and spend the full day. There are loads of walks, hotels, bars etc for a few beers if you take the bus. Most places sell food as well. It is great... More

Zagreb is still a city where people stay just for a few days, so they usually miss some lovely places. Medvednica is one of them. Locals go there often because it's a nature park full of mountain trails, mountain lodges, and beautiful nature sights.

...for hiking, walking, skiing, cycling or anything else you like to do in nature. You can hike to top or come with ropeway or car. There is a few restaurants. If you really like to walk you can come to top and go down on oposite side Zagorje area.

Best, and only mountaineering to be done in the city of Zagreb. Good place for hiking, scenic viewing and some good food at the peak of the Croatian Mountains...

Rode up to the summit on road which was reasonably quiet and a pleasant climb. Intended to do some mtb routes however the routes were not well marked. We were looking for more XC style tracks rather than downhill. Take your tracks on GPS.

Fantastic nature just 30 minutes from Jelačić Square. Great place to refuel your empty batteries and get away from stress if everyday life. Travelers are not so familiar with this venue, which is a shame, because beautiful woods, creeks and views of Medvednica are not be missed. Also, don't bring to much food when going there - there are plenty... More

If you are staying longer in Zagreb you should visit this place. One day is enough for visit. Ascent is not so difficult, it's a little more challenging walk through the woods and greenery with fresh air. For coming there use tram N 14: direct Mihaljevac and that is name of last stop where you have to get out and... More

There are very many well marked hiking trails all over this wooded and cool mountain. Many konobas (taverns) and open air refreshment places. Too bad the topography makes for many ascents and descents. Also, the forest vegetation results in relatively few views down into the plains.
