Prague to Vienna


Prague to Vienna 9 Days
From the Old World charm of Prague and the Czech Republic, our journey will include the Unesco World Heritage site of Cesky-Krumlov and idyllic countryside of southern Bohemia; in Austria, we'll follow the Danube River, where you can choose between gentle bike paths or venture into the nearby moderate hills where vineyards tempt. Our trip finishes in Vienna, one of Europe's most important artistic centers. The 9 day tour includes two nights and two days in Prague, with local guided walks.




 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

Tabor - You will transfer from Prague by train. We suggest the 9:05 train that arrives in Tabor at 10:55. Your bikes will be waiting at the hotel. You will have options of 25, 37, and 58 km as you explore the countryside here. Tabor is a Hussite village with Renaissance buildings and a beautiful historic center. If time permits, visit a labyrinthe of tunnels dating from the 15th century, used by defenders of the town. The Hotel Nautilus is a 4-star boutique hotel in the historical center.

Day 4+5

Cesky-Krumlov - You can cycle all the way from Tabor to Cesky-Krumlov, or for those prefering a more moderate day, transfer first to Cesky-Budejovice, which has a fascinating center. Arrive to Cesky-Krumlov, the most exquisite town in the Czech Republic. Next day, ride south to Lake Lipno in Sumava National Park returning along the Vltava River. Back in Cesky-Krumlov, we have included a walking tour with a local historian including a visit to the castle of Krumlov Hrad. There are terrific restaurants to choose between here- we'll share our favourites with you.


Day 6
Maria Taferl - We will arrange a transfer from Cesky-Krumlov to Enns, the oldest city in Austria and situated on the Danube. From here, cycle downstream through the fertile Machland, crossing Europe's oldest wooden bridge and the villages of Ardagger Markt, with its many museums and the pretty village of Grein. You'll cross the Danube at Ybbs and at Marbach, climb up to Maria Taferl where your hotel boasts an exquisite view over the valley. Those wishing a longer ride, can challenge themselves with a loop to the village of Artstetten nearby.



Prague to Vienna

Day 7+8

Weissenkirchen - Following the Danube east through the Wachau, a region of abbeys, churches and castles we’ll reach Melk Abbey, a magnificent Baroque building still used by Benedictine monks; our hotel, the Raffelsberger Hof, located in Weissenkirchen, dates from 1574 and was renovated into a boutique hotel by the Anton family.

Next day, continue to Durnstein, with the romantically-situated ruins of Durnstein castle above town. England's King Richard the Lionhearted was held hostage for a king's ransom in the castle in the 12th cenutury. In Krems, visit the Weinstadt Museum, in a restored 13th century Dominican monastery, and for those interested in more wine knowledge (and tastings), the Winzer Krems, a prominent winery. The short option loops back to the hotel and the moderate ride continues on to Tulln, the 'flower town' on the Danube.


Day 9

Transfer to Krems for train connections into Vienna for flights or extended stay.
