I'm now planning to make one-week trip in Bayerisches Wald, Germany & Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic at the end of this month.
I've collected load of information about Bayerisches Wald. Yet there're not much information about Cesky Krumlov.
Has anyone been there? Could anyone provide following information?
1. I plan to drive from Bayerisches Wald to Cesky Krumlov. Is there any online map about these two areas available?
2. Scenic spots in Cesky Krumlov
3. Contact details of tourist information in Cesky Krumlov
Thanks in advance!
I was in Czecky Krumlov in Dec 2003..... bit stressed in work today but will send you loads of info tomorrow....
Hi Again, I can't help with the road maps as I don't drive and travelled around Czech Republic but for the rest -
Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful town, it was added to Unesco’s World Heritage list in 2002. ( When you see it you will agree with them !!!) It has the second largest chateau in the Czech Republic , second to Prague Castle. It can be seen from nearly every point in the town – very impressive ….. and breathtaking at night time when it is all lit up. Most of the towns must sees are within walking distance….. there is a lot of walks starting at the tourist office that will guarantee you see everything… (infocentrum fax 71 11 83 ./ firstname.lastname@example.org ……………). If you need any help with accommodation let me know, we stayed in a Gothic tower , it was pretty cool , there is also a very good hostel there (hostel 99- a few friends stayed there)….
Hope you have a great time………and sorry about the delay but it took me a while to find my journal with the email + fax details for the tourist centre…….
Route planning by road for all of Europe is generally best at www.viamichelin.com/, although local issues etc they aren't always perfectly up to date, although always good enough.
And for such a short journey, you shouldn't have much problem making it up as you go along - just point the car East aiming for, urm, Freyung** i think the place is called, and then turn left towards Czech, and then Right not long over the border...
If you don't want to bother with more back roads, fail safe versions are to hit the main Autobahn and then turn left/north eastish in Passau, or even easier, left/North in Linz heading Ceske Budejowice (Summerau border). You just can't miss it!
- * i can't remember the exact name of the damned place, but you should be able to find it easily enough!
