Prague Bike Tours

Bohemian Chic

Two must-see European capitals on one magnificent trip—why not? Start: Prague—a boho-chic playground where resplendence is the rule, not the exception. End: Vienna—Austria’s handsome jewel along the Danube. In between, Czech hospitality; mile after mile of great riverside rides past vineyards; hilltop monasteries and crumbling castles; a hearty bowl of goulash and a pint of Pilsner enjoyed over candlelight in a private library; a leisurely float down the Big D and the grandest of all finales. Getting there really is half the fun.

Signature Hotels: This trip uses premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they've had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Day by Day

Start the day with a ride into the rolling landscape of the Moravian highlands. Enjoy a beer tasting at a monastery’s famed microbrewery before biking to the village of Jirice for a traditional Czech countryside lunch.

Explore rural Czech life with an adventurous bike ride through the Vysočina highlands. Later, set out for the castle of Lipnice nad Savavou with our local guide Tereza.

Embark on a scenic drive to Austria and embark on a bike ride high in the picturesque Waldviertal region. Ride through sun-dappled forests and fields before venturing into the thousand-year old riverside towns of the Kamptal wine region.

Cycle the delightfully flat paths along the Danube, surrounded by vineyards. Wander the hallowed halls of the baroque Melk monastery before a tasting at a nearby wine cellar.

Pedal downstream to colourful Kirchberg. Take a guided walk around Vienna, then celebrate the trip in style at one of the city’s best locales.

Enjoy a farewell breakfast at the hotel and bis speda in magnificent Vienna.

Hotels

Chateau Heralec, Heralec

A luxury 5 star boutique property opened to great acclaim in 2010, this former national heritage site and re-imagined 17th century chateau is the brainchild of Alexandra Casparova. Surrounded by a stately 18th century English park and outfitted with an over the top spa, this is the perfect Czech getaway. View hotel website »

Hotel Richard Lowenherz, Wachau

Founded on the site of a 700-year-old Clarissinian Abbey, the Richard Löwenherz is now a hotel filled with Renaissance sculpture, elegant chandeliers and stone vaulting. Frau Theiry and her staff quickly make us feel at home whether we’re lounging with an after-dinner schnapps, lazing in the garden, or enjoying breakfast on the arbour-covered terrace overlooking the Danube.

Hotel Sacher Wien, Vienna

Established in 1876 in the centre of the city, Hotel Sacher Wien blends traditional décor and modern amenities, and is conveniently located across from the Opera House, the Kärntner Straße, and a mere five-minute walk from the Hofburg Imperial Palace. But it’s this Leading Hotels of the World’s famed eponymous chocolate dessert that may leave the most enduring impression! View hotel website »

Activity Level

Recreational

The riding in the Czech Republic and Austria offers much variety in landscape. Heading east of Prague and through the forested area around Chateau Mcely, we encounter some moderately hilly terrain. Riding to Chateau Kotera is relatively flat with a few rolling hills to climb. The bike paths along the Danube are virtually flat and hassle-free. Long options are available.
