Follow the Greenways Trail from Prague to Vienna! For the first part of the trail from Prague to Cesky Krumlov you will travel by minibus or car. We leave Prague early in the morning in order to have sufficient time to explore one of the best-preserved medieval town in Europe. During the following days, you will travel through the lands of the Trebon ponds and through the woods on the border with Austria called Czech Canada. You will visit the Renaissance towns of Trebon and Telc and many others. The trail will take you through the vineyards of South Moravia, where you will lodge in the cultural centers of the region, Znojmo and Mikulov. And finally the whole trip ends in the breathtaking city of Vienna. We wish you a pleasant trip!
Day 1: Arrival in Prague
Day 2: Transfer to Cesky Krumlov
The tour starts with a welcome briefing and the transfer from Prague to Cesky Krumlov. Then check in at your hotel and take some time for sightseeing in this beautiful medieval town.

Day 3: Cesky Krumlov - Trebon, ~53 or 63 km/32 or 38 miles
Before leaving Cesky Krumlov you should visit the castle and garden in the morning. Then the route leads through the beautiful hilly landscape surrounding the town. However, the closer you get to Trebon area, the flatter the landscape becomes. A scenic ride through a picturesque landscape ends in Trebon, also well-known as a major spa resort. Here you will check in to your hotel and you visit the Schwarzenberg Tomb. In case you would like to relax in a spa, we can arrange a massage, a whirlpool or other services at Trebon's wellness center. We also recommend an evening walk around the Renaissance town.

You will follow the border with Austria on the Greenways trail passing through Nova Bystrice, where you should have lunch. From Nova Bystrice the trail will take you through the forests of the National Park called Czech Canada. The day ends in Telc, a Renaissance town registered on the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List. The houses on the main square in Telc, with facades decorated with typically renaissance graffiti, form the best-preserved Renaissance Square in the Czech Republic. It is extremely interesting to compare the differences between the towns of Trebon, Cesky Krumlov and Telc.
