Hello,

Brno: By train and by bus it would take about two hours. The exactly duration depends on the place where you depart in Vienna.

Cesky Krumlov: By train it would take about four and a half hour and you would have to change during the journey.

Brno is a great place, but you need longer than a day trip, ideally - as above, it takes about 2 hours each way by train - usually it is quicker than that, but they are upgrading the infrastructure in Vienna.

If you buy your tickets in advance the journey there costs €19 from www.oebb.at and back is only €9 from https:/… (select the English option top right)

Český Krumlov is not a day trip from Vienna.

Oops ! I did not know they were that far from Vienna ! I am in Prague and it seems that Brno is closer to Vienna than Prague ! And some day trips suggested from Prague included Brno !!!

Thanks for all info

Brno is almost exactly in between the two time-wise, but architecturally, historically and culturally it is much closer to Vienna. Most people pass straight through, which is their loss, but on the plus side it means that it has remained 'real' and free of tourist crowds.

Try it for a couple of days and you will find that you will be coming back for more - it has close ties to Canada, BTW - the Professor of English at the university is Canadian, for example - he came for a visit in 1968 and stayed as he liked it so much .. it has that sort of effect :)

We did Cesky Krumlov from Prague. It was fantastic. Most hotels would be able to tell you about a tour, or how to get there. We were on a tour already so it was part of an optional. So glad we did it.
