A villa among fields and trees in the outskirts of Prague

Regensburg – Prague

From the Danube city to the golden city

7 Days / 6 Nights
A villa among fields and trees in the outskirts of Prague

A bicycle tour from the old imperial city Regensburg to the golden city Prague promises many new experiences. On the way, you will pass through diverse landscapes and explore idyllic river valleys. The tour features magnificent views across the hills and unmissable cities, which entice one to explore their many castles and picturesque market places - fair rewards for a few uphill sections. Countless cultural highlights are just waiting to be discovered. Aside from Regensburg and Prague, these include the picturesque market places of Domazlice and the “Drachenstich” city of Furth im Wald, famed for its dragon-themed folk theatre piece. The widely known Karlštejn castle is also included, and of course Pilsen, with its tradition-steeped brewery and the imposing Cathedral of St. Bartholomew. This bicycle tour is simply guaranteed to astonish and delight one and all.

Itinerary at a glance

Culturally, the Stone Bridge in Regensburg, the Drachenstich Town of Furth im Wald, and the St. Bartholomew's Cathedral in Pilsen are impressive. Prague is among the most beautiful cities, and picturesque landscapes line the way there.

We recommend arriving early - this mediaeval city was named a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 2006, so take some time before the start of the tour for a relaxed stroll through the streets.

After breakfast, the first leg of the journey begins. You will follow the river Regen the whole time and pass through magnificent deciduous forests, water meadows and virgin landscapes. Roding, widely known as the gateway to the Bavarian forest, is the ideal spot to take a lunch break. Following the many meanders of the river Regen further, you will soon reach the first day’s goal - Cham.

A tour of the over 1000-year-old Cham will enchant you before you hop on your bike for the next part of the tour. At first, you will follow the banks of the river Chamb, which will quickly lead you to the “Drachenstich” town Furth im Wald. The “Drachenstich” is Germany’s oldest folk theatre piece and re-enacts the slaying of a dragon, drawing tens of thousands of visitors each year. On a tour through the dragon caves, you will find out all about the story of the Furth im Wald dragon, the theatre piece as well as the technology behind the world’s largest 4-legged walking robot. The Czech border is just a few kilometres away from Furth. Once across the border and on the Bohemian side, the road will lead you straight to Domazlice.

The charming Domazlice is sure to delight you. Nestled in untouched nature, the town has a lively folklore tradition. In the centre, there are numerous colourful Renaissance houses with pergolas. You will pass through splendid landscapes and visit lots of small villages on your bicycle. A good Pils is the perfect end to the day and makes up for any exertions along the way.

For large parts of today’s route, you will pedal your way through tranquil landscapes and nature parks. Small, idyllic villages like Dobřív are scattered along the way. Your goal, Beroun, invites one to linger a while, and its mediaeval city walls can easily be explored on foot.

The last step starts off by following the river Berounka. Soon you will reach Karlštejn. The High Gothic castle there was built in 1348 and is known far and wide. Shortly before Prague, the Berounka joins the Vltava, and this river will then lead you right into the city centre of Prague. The Czech metropolis is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. An evening stroll is the perfect end to this impression-filled bicycle tour.

Your tour ends after breakfast. Then you can either decide to extend your stay, or avail of our comfortable transfer service with the bicycle transport van.

For the most part, you will cycle along separate cycle paths and secondary roads, with only a few sections featuring heavier traffic. Please note that the Czech part of the route includes some steep climbs and requires a good level of fitness. The signposting of the route is generally good
