    Small pension, small price, great place!


    I've been to Pension U Pivovaru in 2001. I booked it at the information centre at the castle, they showed me some pics and told the price... 2 mins later I was there!
    The owner is a wonderful lady who doesn't speak English (unless she learnt it during these last 3 years!), but knows some German, and most of all, knows perfectly how to make a guest happy, expecially at morning when she will bring you some wonderful breakfast directly in the room! ;-))
    We slept in a double room, with bath/shower, very clean and really cannot complain about anything. The price was very cheap, now it seems to be a bit more expensive (1000CZK per person), but it's surely still a great place!

    Unique Quality: In historically delicately reconstructed object in the town center, pension provides accommodation above standard in the double bed, three bed and four bed rooms. Each room is equipped with TV set, and has its own toilet and bathroom. Guests can spend time of their rest by romantic walks in town, or by rides in its surrounding without being afraid of their cars - parking for visitors is available.

    Directions: Very close to the castle, just go down the street and take one of the small streets on the left.

Train/bus from Vienna to Cesky Krumlov

by wmp

I am planning to take a trip to Cesky krumlov from Vienna and back, in October. Does anyone know how to get there? Some member advised to go to Kaplice from Cesky Krumlov. How to I get to Kaplice or Ceske Budejovice from Vienna?

Could anyone give me advice? Thanks !!

For trains, check or, for bus, I don't know. Happy travels!

Hallo, here is one possibility:

train from Wien Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof at 6.21 (No. R2100) to Ceske Budejovice (arrival at 9.49), than from CB at 10.35 (train No. 8105 - it is a local train) to Cesky Krumlov (arrival 11.28).

The way back might be a biut tricky - take a bus from Cesky Krumlov autobusove nadrazi at 17.15 to Ceske Budejovice (arrival 17.55) and therefrom a train No. R361 to Wien which departs CB at 18.10 and arrives Wien at 21.47.
There is a risk that if the bus is delayed you might miss your train in CB.

It would be easier if you spent one night either in C.Budejovice or in C.Krumlov.

We recently got back from Europe, and went from Cesky Krumlov to Vienna by bus then train. The buses to Ceske Budejovice take only about half an hour, then you can connect in Linz by train. It was all quite simple, and were in Vienna by 2pm, so I can't imagine it's too hard going back the other way.

Travel Tips for Cesky Krumlov


by monkeytrousers

There are a lot of marked hikes in and around the town. Luckily my hostel had a map of a few of them but Im sure the tourist info office can help you out if your hostel or hotel does not.

Here is a fairly simple and short one to an old witches meeting point (see photo) where years ago legend has it that members of the occult met up to perform thier deeds.

Head to the castle and go through into the garden. About halfway through the garden you can exit the gardens through a gate on the right into a small car park and road. Just ahead of you there will be a small mound to the right with a wood ontop. Head up the road and you'll see a track leading up to the hill. Go up the track and head right at the fork to walk around the woods. The track will eventually lead into the woods, follow it and it will bring you to the meeting place.

Take the bus!

by Krumlovgirl

Be warned: the train station is about two miles all downhill to down. I know this because we had to walk it at midnight one night when we got back from Prague. It is a looonnggg cold walk. Hail a taxi if you see one-we didn’t.

Krumlov isn’t on the way to anywhere. You can get there by taking a train connection from Ceske Budejovice, but that’s about it. If you’re coming from Prague then that is where you will probably change trains. But the train will stop about every ten feet to let people out. (And I swear it didn’t always stop at stations, either.) I would recommend taking the bus, which is faster and cheaper. From Prague, expect to pay about $6 one way for first class on a train.

Dont miss ''Pork Knee''

by Animas about KRCMA restaurant

I cant give you the exactly address of this restaurant but you might see the ad of it near by Tourist Information or you can ask somebody around there. It opens 5 pm We had Garlic soup --- it was a soup of garlic with cheese ( yummy! ) in bread and a big pork knee that you must have it.

The Bear Pit

by iwys

Part of the moat of Cesky Krumlov Castle has been used as a bear pit since 1707. Bears are part of the Rosenburg family crest and a symbol of their power. There are currently two bears in the pit, which you will see if you look down to your left, as you enter the castle.

Personally, I found the spectacle rather sad, but the bears looked healthy enough and they had plenty of fresh food. Realistically, looking at the alternatives for European bears, they probably couldn't do much better anywhere else.

Cesky Krumlov was lucky in WW II

by globetrott

Cesky Krumlov was lucky during WW II, as it was not bombed at all.

After the war most of the money was invested into the castle, and into cheap appartment-houses in the outside-quaters of Cesky Krumlov.

But since the end of Communism a lot of money was invested into the old buildings in the centre that are in perfect condition now.
