Prague to Vienna

Prague to Vienna Avid 9 Days
From the Old World charm of Prague and the Czech Republic, this journey will include the Unesco World Heritage site of Cesky-Krumlov and idyllic countryside of southern Bohemia; in Austria, follow the Danube River, where you can choose between gentle bike paths or venture into the nearby moderate hills where vineyards tempt. Finish in Vienna, one of Europe's most important artistic centers. This tour is the AVID version of our Prague to Vienna trip, where you'll ride 'door to door'. You must be fit and enjoy riding longer distances with hills.




Day 1+2:

Arrival day: Prague. We will arrange airport pick-up to coincide with your flight and whisk you to the Hotel Josef, located in the historical center. Take time to relax, and explore when ready using our City Guide for Prague. Next day, we will arrange a local guide to meet you at the hotel and take you for a 1/2 day of guided walking tour. Prague is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the world and a great way to begin your trip.

Day 3:
Pruhonice This is one of the shorter days, to allow you the morning to further explore Vienna. Leaving Prague, the route follows Czech Greenways departing the city and it isn't long before you are into the countryside and spinning past small villages. You will overnight in the pleasant village of Pruhonice. Distance 30 km; 150 m ascent

Day 4:
Tabor The next day's ride will pass many small villages, including the castle at Tynec nad Sazavou and Sedleg-Prcice following Czech Greenways on paved routes. Arriving to Tabor, you will enjoy the comfort of Hotel Nautilus and the superb restaurant (included dinner). Distance: 105 km; 645m ascent

Day 5:
Cesky Krumlov The ride from Tabor to Cesky-Krumlov is superb, with Ceske-Budejovice worth a stop mid-morningto explore its vibrant centre. In Hluboka nad Vltavou, visit the castle and then onward to the jewel of Bohemia, Cesky-Krumlov. Distance: 90 km; 590 m ascent


Day 6:
Enns This is the longest cycling day with some healthy climbs, but the descent from Czech into Austria and down to the Danube river valley will be quite a thrill. Enns is the oldest city in Austria and has a vibrant city centre to explore. Distance: 100/ 130 km; 900 m ascent; 1100 m descent


Day 7:
Maria Taferl The ride along the Danube River Valley is flat, yet scenic as you will be close to the river most of the day. Save something for the wee climb up to Maria Taferl, where a superb dinner awaits. Distance: 80 km; 275 m ascent

Day 8:
Start with a descent down to the river and then a fast spin past vineyards with tasting opportunities. You will stay in Krems, a city with lots to offer.

Day 9:

Vienna Congratulations, a short train ride (ticket cost is 12 euros) will whisk  you into Vienna centre for onward travel.
