Hiking the Trebević Peak Trail in Sarajevo

Posted on

Trebević hoovers above the city of Sarajevo, it’s an easy place to get to especially by the cable car. From there one can to a soft nature walk, see the old bobsleigh track, have a refreshment or keep hiking up to the peak. It’s very accessible. I took some hours off to to a speed hike up to the peak of Trebević and run down again. All from and to the cable car. I recommend a hike up to Trebević if you’re in Sarajevo, love nature and have some extra time.

Trebević se uzdiže iznad grada Sarajeva, do njega je lako doći, posebno žičarom. Odatle se može lagano prošetati prirodom, razgledati staru stazu za bob, osvježiti se ili nastaviti pješačiti do vrha. Veoma je pristupačan. Uzeo sam nekoliko sati pauze da se brzo popnem do vrha Trebevića i ponovo nazad trčeći. Sve od i do žičare. Preporučam planinarenje na Trebeviću ako ste u Sarajevu, volite prirodu i imate malo više vremena.

Cable car to the peak: 1h 28 min (10:20 – 11:48)
Peak to cable car: 30min running (12:19 – 12:49)

Here’s a map so you can see the trails up there. All of them are well marked.

Before and after you hade Sarajevo below, with anything you wish for. Like a cooling big fat sallad after a hike?

A collage of drone footage I recorded in Sarajevo and up on Trebević in late June. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1885 the city was one of the first in the world to have a full-time electric tram network. 99 years later Sarajevo hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. Sadly during the aggression and genocide against Bosnia & Herzegovina the city suffered the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare (1,425 days, April 1992 to February 1996). The city has a rich and varied music- and art scene along with historical and spiritual treasures for the curious. Trebević (1627 m) is a mountain within the city and easy to access via trails. A city you always feel like coming back to!

Kolaž snimaka dronom koji sam snimio u Sarajevu i na Trebeviću krajem juna. Sarajevo je glavni i najveći grad Bosne i Hercegovine. 1885 godine grad je bio jedan od prvih u svijetu koji je imao stalnu mrežu električnih tramvaja. 99 godina kasnije Sarajevo je bio domaćin Zimskih olimpijskih igara 1984. Nažalost, tokom agresije i genocida nad Bosnom i Hercegovinom grad je pretrpio najdužu opsadu glavnog grada u historiji modernog ratovanja (1.425 dana, od aprila 1992 do februara 1996). Grad ima bogatu i raznoliku muzičku i umjetničku scenu, kao i istorijsko i duhovno blago za radoznale. Trebević (1627 m) je planina u gradu i lako dostupna putem staza. Grad u koji se uvijek rado vraćate!

My wife did a nice video mashup from her instagram which I’d gladly share here.
