How to get there

By car

When travelling from Prague, you can choose between two main routes.

You can take road E 55 to České Budějovice and from there road I/39, which leads to Český Krumlov. The journey will take around two hours and a quarter.

The second option is motorway D4. From Prague go in the direction of Zbraslav, then take road E49 and continue along road II/166. If you choose this option, the journey will take about 15 minutes longer than along road E55.

By train

You can take the train from the main railway station in Prague to České Budějovice, where you have to change to a different train or bus. The duration of the journey depends on the delay caused by the change, usually it takes around three hours.

By bus

From Prague (“Florenc Central Bus Station” or “Na Knížecí”) you can take RegioJet and FlixBus buses to Český Krumlov. The journey by this direct bus takes around three hours and the bus only stops in Písek and České Budějovice.

By plane

The biggest airport in the Czech Republic is the airport in Prague – Václav Havel Airport (190 kms from Český Krumlov). Some flights fly to Brno (250 kms from Český Krumlov) while other flights fly to Linz in Austria (88 kms from Český Krumlov) or to Munich in Germany (270 kms from Český Krumlov).

The airport closest to Český Krumlov is the small airport in České Budějovice (21 kms from Český Krumlov), which should be prepared for charter, touristic, business as well as cargo national and international transport from 2021.
