Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Maribor, we go to the exit Vransko, and then we continue driving on the parallel old road in the direction of Celje. A little after settlements Kapla, we leave the main road and we continue driving left in the direction of Braslovče. Ahead we drive through Gomilsko, and the road towards Braslovče we follow to the spot, where signs for castle Žovnek point us to the left. Further, we drive on a little narrower road by lake Žovneško jezero, and we are driving there to the spot, where on a power line pole we notice signposts for castle Žovnek. Because by the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots, it is better to park already a little lower on an appropriate place by the road, or we can also drive on the road higher towards the castle Žovnek and then we park there on an appropriate place by the road.
B) From highway Maribor - Ljubljana, we go to the exit Šentrupert, and then we continue driving in the direction Mozirje. At the settlement Parižlje we leave the main road and we continue driving on a local road towards the settlement Spodnje Gorče. Here we cross the main road Gomilsko - Braslovče and we continue driving in the direction of village and castle Žovnek. Further, we drive on a little narrower road by lake Žovneško jezero, and we are driving there to the spot, where on a power line pole we notice signposts for castle Žovnek. Because by the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots, it is better to park already a little lower on an appropriate place by the road, or we can also drive on the road higher towards the castle Žovnek and then we park there on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From power line pole we go right through a meadow to the edge of the forest, where on a tree we notice a little bigger blaze. Here the path goes into the forest, and it starts relatively steeply ascending. The path soon flattens and brings us on a wider cart track, on which we walk to a smaller crossing. Here we continue left uphill (right path bypasses the castle Žovnek) and we continue the ascent on a steep path, on which in 2 minutes of additional walking, we get to the castle Žovnek.
