This version of Czech Greenways was the first long distance cycling trail going through the Czech Republic. Seasoned cyclists will enjoy riding the whole way from Vienna to Prague. There is a great variety of landscapes along the route – from the warm, winegrowing region of South Moravia, the lush, forested Podyjí National Park, to the Czech-Moravian Highlands, the lakes surrounding Telč and the romantic countryside of central Bohemia. Enjoy the numerous fairytale castles, chateaux, and small historical towns on the trail. Add to this the best beer in the world in local pubs along the trail and it is hard to find a route rivaling this one in Central Europe.

Itinerary

Day 1: Vienna - Stockerau
After your arrival in Vienna, make your way individually to Stockerau (car, train or 18 km by bike). We will meet you at your hotel with the necessary materials and bikes.
Overnight in Stockerau.

Day 2: Stockerau - Mikulov (77 km / 48 miles)
On the first day of the route you will follow the Leiserbergweg bike path to Ernstbrunn (Leiser Berge Natural Park). After passing into the Czech Republic through the border post at Laa an der Thaya, the South Moravian lowland terrain is flat all the way to Drnholec. Transfer by car to Mikulov.
Overnight in Mikulov.

Day 3: Mikulov - Znojmo – Vranov nad Dyjí (104 km / 64 miles)
From Mikulov you’ll cycle along the Austrian border to the historic city of Znojmo. After Znojmo you begin your gradual climb into the Czech-Moravian Highlands, through Podyji National Park with its unspoiled nature, beautiful views of the deep, forested river valley, and the last remnant of the Iron Curtain. Another highlight is Vranov castle, perched high on a rock above the Dyje River. A shorter cycling option is available, beginning with a car transfer from Mikulov to Znojmo (cycling 43 km / 27 miles). 
Overnight in Vranov nad Dyji.

Day 4: Vranov nad Dyjí – Slavonice – Telč (78 km / 48 miles)
Cycle along the Austrian border to Slavonice, a forgotten jewel with sgraffito houses. Then cycle from Slavonice to Telč, which has a well-preserved Renaissance town center listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A shorter cycling option, with a train transfer from Slavonice to Telč, is available (cycling 48 km / 30 miles).
Overnight in Telč.

Day 5: Telč – Jindřichův Hradec (42 km / 26 miles)
Today you will cycle through the Czech-Moravian Highlands, through fields and forests. A unique stop on the way is the memorial in Kostelní Myslová to Jewish painter František Moritz Nágl, a local artist who died in Auschwitz extermination camp along with his family. Finish the day in the old town of Jindřichův Hradec, containing the third biggest castle complex in the Czech Republic.
Overnight in Jindřichův Hradec.

Day 6: Jindřichův Hradec - Tábor (49 km / 30 miles)
This route leads through a tapestry of woods and ponds to Červená Lhota, with a beautiful little chateau built on a rocky island in the middle of a pond. Afternoon arrival in Tábor leaves plenty of time for a tour of this historic town, founded by the Hussites.
Overnight in Tábor.

Day 7: Tábor - Benešov (73 km / 46 miles)
From Tábor we ride through a region of highlands with woods and pastures, an area known as Czech Siberia for its blustery winter weather and unspoiled environment. There is a beautiful view of the river Lužnice from the bridge in the town of Sedlec-Prčice, the destination of the annual Prague-Prčice walk. The highlight of this day is a visit to the impressive chateau of Konopiště with its large English park and Rose Garden.
Overnight in Benešov.
