Vienna Bike Tours

Imperial Splendour, Bohemian Rhapsody

A journey between the great capitals of Vienna and Prague is a trip back in time. In Austria, we ride the UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley, where wine has been cultivated for some 1,000 years. We follow the Danube through vineyards and villages, appreciate Baroque architecture and entertain the kids with fun amid the medieval ruins. Crossing into the Czech Republic, in Bohemia we pedal through the breadbasket of the country, past castles and churches, lush forests and winding rivers. Cesky Krumlov is a fairy tale town, its red roofs and spires soaring above the Vltava River. Arriving in renascent Prague by week’s end, we celebrate the adventure in style.

Trip Details

Hotels:
Bistro

Signature

We use 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.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Hotels

Hotel Kirchenwirt, Weissenkirchen

The perfect hotel for families is, not surprisingly, run with care by not one but two Austrian families, the Wildeis’ and Köcks. The four-star Kirchenwirt’s rooms are airy and comfortable, and its location, tucked in the streets of a charming riverside town along the Danube bike path, is ideal. View hotel website »

Hotel Ruze, Cesky Krumlov

The Hotel Ruze is the best hotel in Ceský Krumlov. Constructed as a 16thC Jesuit Monastery in the Renaissance style, it is now a comfortable (though not luxury) hotel with a beautiful view of the village, the river and surrounding hills. Our favourite place to enjoy this vista is from the restaurant terrace—with a glass of local pivo (beer) of course! View hotel website »

Hotel Hoffmeister, Prague

We are the only active travel company to stay at this hotel, one of Prague’s finest addresses. Mere minutes from Stari Grad (Old Town), the five-star Hoffmeister boasts two topnotch restaurants and a spa/wellness centre that is one of the best in the city. View hotel website »

Activity Level

Recreational

The riding in Austria offers much variety in landscape and is almost completely downhill or flat along the Danube river banks. In the Czech region of Bohemia, the landscape becomes more rolling, though the frequent hills are never very long nor steep. Long options are also available. The activities on this trip are geared for children 10 years old and up.

Accolades

“This was my first B&R trip and first biking trip ever. I was so impressed by all the little details and the general experience. My most memorable moment was simply getting to know the people on the trip and taking part in the rides. Our trip was amazing—it was fun, active, adventurous, unique and a great way to see a new part of the world.”
