Tour Detail

 

Day 2 A morning transfer takes us out of the busy streets of Prague and south to the town on Pisek. Here we climb on to the bikes and begin our cycling through the central European landscape. Along the way we pass the beautiful village of Holasovice, where you can enjoy rural Baroque architecture. The village is on a list of UNESCO world heritage sites. Continuing south, the day’s ride finishes on the banks of the Vltava river in the wonderful old town of Cesky Krumlov, another UNESCO protected area, with its impressive castle and well preserved medieval town centre. Riding distance approx. 30km.

Hotel in Cesky Krumlov

 

Day 3 We ride from the 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 we will cycle around them. Ride approx. 50km.

Hotel in Trebon.

 

Day 4 From Trebon we head eastwards out of Bohemia and into neighboring Moravia. Moving away from the carp-rearing Trebonsko area of the previous day, the landscape becomes more rolling. Our target today is Telc. This town boasts a wonderfully-preserved square with Renaissance gables and sgraffitto facades. The medieval town square was destroyed by a great fire in 1530, but it was rebuilt, and its houses, in the Renaissance and Baroque styles, survive to this day and since 1950 have undergone careful restoration. Ride approx. 50km. Hotel in Telc.

 

Day 5 We are now heading towards the boarder with Austria. This region and the area around the River Dyje has seen shifting fortunes: in earlier centuries it looked south to Vienna, but with the forced removal of the Germanic population after the Second World War and then the establishment of the Iron Curtain to form one of the most tightly guarded borders in Europe, it became a poor, quiet backwater. Passing through Rennaisance town Slavonice, through mostly wooded, hilly country, castle pass by as we ride to Vranov nad Dyji. The castle belong to gems of Czech baroque architecture. Ride approx. 70km. Hotel in Vranov.
