Hotel Bellevue is nestled into the pedestrian mall close to the Ceský Krumlov Castle, in the centre of historical zone inscribed in 1992 on the UNESCO List of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The first mention of the building dates back to 1561. A renowned bakery and baker's shop were located in the building during the 16th and 17th century. Well known for outstanding service, beautiful guest rooms and exquisite dining options, Hotel Bellevue is an excellent first hotel for this trip.
Schlosshotel Rosenau | Zwettl, Austria
This fully-restored hotel was built on the present site at the end of the 16th century and was altered to the Baroque style you see today by Count Leopold Cristoph von Schallenberg in the middle of the 17th century. The decorated rooms of the south wing were once a Freemasons’ meeting place and are now a Masonic museum. Features also include tennis courts, gardens, and a pond.

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Prague to Vienna is best suited for our Type 2 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is gentle rolling hills and smaller roads with very light traffic the first three days of our trip. When we reach the Danube River, we will be riding mostly on beautiful (and flat) bicycle paths. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.
What are the options for a non-rider travel companion?
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. See Included In The Trip Price for more information.
Some non-riding options on this trip are:

Wow’s From Our Guests & More Photos
When we asked our guests what their favorite WOW's were from their Prague to Vienna bike vacations, here is what they said…
Andrea and Monica showed us all a fabulous time. We are already talking about our next excursion with you and we hope that these two incredible women will be a part of it. Thank you for wonderful memories that will never, ever be forgotten.—Maria
The Czech countryside is fantastically beautiful. The rides were easy to navigate and short enough in length to allow us exploration times. The Danube River valley is beautiful as well. Good mix of hard (hilly) days and easy days.—Mary Pat
The entire trip. From the sites, the food, the people, and the bikes. It was a great trip.—Todd
The service and the location were both incredible. I had never been to an organized tour before but this definitely sets a very high bar. Loved it!!! Was one of the best vacations of all time!!—Rishi
Patrick and I loved the trip. Angela and Leanne were very knowledgeable and fun.—Lisa
