Tour

Prague to Vienna

Prague to Vienna

Degree of difficulty - B

A tour that steps back in time exploring the beautiful medieval villages of the Czech republic.

The wonderful Baroque architecture of Prague and the imposing imperial palaces of Vienna are well known to most people. What is less well known is that the Czech Republic has a very well developed network of wonderful cycle routes on quiet back roads and dedicated paths linking these two central European cities.

Our Safari starts in the stunning city of Prague before we take a transfer into the heart of the Czech Republic to begin our cycling. The tour meanders its way across the provinces of Bohemia and Moravia towards Austria, through perfectly preserved medieval towns and villages, many of which are Unesco World Heritage sites. Highlights include Cesky Crumlov, dominated by a beautiful castle, and Telc with its wonderfully preserved medieval town square.

If you should head to Italy and France for the wine without doubt you should head to the Czech Republic for the beer!

Please contact us in the office for more information (info@cyclingsafaris.com).

DAY 1 Arrive in Prague
You will be met at the Airport and transferred to your hotel in the beautiful city of Prague. On arrival in the city you can check into your hotel and then explore the city at your leisure.

DAY 2 Prague to Cesky Krumlov approx. 27 km / 16 miles
In the morning you will be met and collected by our representatives (time will be advised on the voucher which you will receive on your arrival) to their office for welcome briefing and setting with your bikes. Then you will be transferred (155km/97m) by minibus to České Budejovice, the home of the “Original Budweiser“, where you begin your cycling through the central European landscape, to arrive in time to explore the wonderful old town of Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO protected city, with its impressive castle and well preserved medieval town centre.

DAY 3 Cesky Krumlov to Trebon approx. 61 km / 38 miles
You ride from your hotel, continuing through the southern Bohemian countryside to the beautiful Renaissance town of Trebon, located in a region of oak woods, meadows and large lakes. The international importance of the fishponds and lakes of this area is acknowledged by its status as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This is also the town of one of the oldest Czech breweries, Regent. Many of the fishponds date from the 15th and 16th centuries, and you will cycle around them.

DAY 4 Trebon to Telc approx. 78 km / 48 miles
You head eastwards out of Bohemia and into neighbouring Moravia, riding along the many ponds so typical of this region, to Perslak, the most northern point of Austria. You follow the border with Austria on the “Greenways” trail, and ride through the forests of Czech Canada National Park. Today’s destination is Telc. This town boasts a wonderfully-preserved square with Renaissance gabels and sgraffitto facades. The medieval town square was destroyed by a great fire in 1530, but was rebuilt, and its houses, in the Renaissance and Baroque styles, survive to this day and since 1950 have undergone careful restoration.

DAY 5 Telc – Vranov nad Dyji approx. 58 km / 36 miles
Today you cycle through several villages typical for this area of the country, a hilly landscape at first but gradually changing to flatter terrain as the day progresses. Vranove nad Dyji is a gate to a region of South Moravia, a region of wine production.

DAY 6 Vranov nad Dyji – Znojmo approx. 38 km / 24 miles
One of the tour highlights is a bike ride through the rural setting of Podyji National Park and a visit to the remains of the Iron Curtain at the Czech – Austrian border. Jnojmo, where you overnight, is a medieval centre and well worth exploring.

DAY 7 Znojmo – Mikulov approx. 70 km / 44 miles
Today you bike on a greenways trail following the River Dyje which borders Austria, an easy trail with just one steep uphill. This flatland region is a traditional vine growing area and there are many wine cellars. Mikulov is a town rich in history on the edge of the limestone Pavlovske Vrchy hills. The town sits under its large castle, destroyed by the Germans and rebuilt in the 1950s, and is now home to the town museum. In the surrounding countryside the emphasis is on vineyards and wine production.

Day 8 Mikulov - Vienna Approx. 45km / 28 miles
Crossing the border and checkpoint at Mikulov, you head into Austria through vineyards, fields and small villages. While it is possible to reach Vienna by bike (96 km / 60 miles), we recomennd finishing the cycle in Poysdorf (25 km) or Mistelbach (35 km) and take a car/van transfer into Vienna (meeting point with the car is set in advance). Accommodation is in a centrally located hotel in the city of Vienna. The tour officially finishes on arrival in Vienna but we have included a night in the city as part of our package.

Day 9 Homeward bound....

By far our tour leader (Milan) made a huge contribution to the success of this years trip.

The guides were warm, friendly & knowledgeable.
It was because of the guides that I was able to make a connection to the Czech culture.

Linda Heltzel (Prague to Vienna 2012)

I had a great time on the cycling trip from Prague to Vienna. Vlasta, Vojta and Jindrich took such good care of me, and made me feel very welcome in each place I stayed. The accommodations were great, food was excellent, and I had no troubles with my bike.
Thank you again for all the arrangements and working out our requests.

My Prague to Vienna bike tour was an outstanding trip at a very reasonable price.  My only complaint is that I wish it had lasted longer.  Made great friends and the value was terrific.
