I have led nike club trips across Czech and have always had Telc as one of my stops. It's in a good place at about 2/3rds the way from Prague to Brno using the non-motorway routes.
There is no parking in the square unless you have a house, a business or a hotel booked. However, most motorcyclists ingore the signs and park up wherever they want to.
Please note that it is not allowed to park the cars on the town square ... there is only one except: If you stay in a hotel on the square it is allowed.
This is a very good regulation in my opinion. So it is possible to take a lot of great pics with NO cars on it ! Simply fantastic....
And if you arrive by car - don't worry. There is a rather huuuuge parking space outside of the old town square. It is easy to park the car there against a small fee. So it is REALLY NOT NECESSARY to park the car on the square ...
But there must be stay a lot of people in the hotel because of the many cars ...
anyway, good for Telc!
I have to say that some of the main roads in
Czechia are even better than some in Austria .....
This rapidely changes if you leave it .... When I left the E59 in the direction to Telc, I suddenly was on an adventurous road with lots of holes and other surprises and the little villages looked like in Austria ... but 30 years ago ....
SO, BE PREPARED !!
(Hmmm.. maybe this tip would be better in the warnings and dangers-section, anyway, take care...)
I guess it is the easiest way to go there by car. There is a big car park next to the old town centre. There is also a tourist information at the car park.
Telc is a few kilometers off to the european main road E59, which goes from Vienna to Prague. There are signs which show you the way to Telc ....
I arrived via bus from Brno. It was 84 kc ($2.39) from Brno to Telc with buses at 6:00, 9:00, 10:00, 13:30, 16:30, and 16:30. It was about two hours and a lovely ride as well. The bus from Telc to Prague was 114 kc (a little over three dollars) and left at 8:15, arriving in Prague at 12:00. If you are smart (I was not!), get off at Chodov and catch the Metro into town.
It is a positive delight to walk around this charming small town.
