We strongly recommend that you plan to stay for more than a glance. Cesky Krumlov is truly one of the most charming small towns around and this region is one of the most beautiful in the country. Day trips to the Sumava National forest for walking, hiking or cycling are just a short (and cheap) train or bus ride away. And other small towns and villages all around can be enjoyed on a bicycle. We are a five minute walk from the town square as well as beautiful forest trails. The castle is a short seven minute walk away and the synogogue is just up the street and has a new charming cafe with outdoor and indoor seating

Take it. It will go slightly uphill and then bend to the right until you reach a traffic light at the main road. Cross the main road and continue forward into town. When you reach the church stairs on your left side make a left and walk along the road which is to the right of the stairs. You will notice a lot of artwork in the windows of the building on the right side as you walk along. It is an art school for children. As the little road goes downhill make a left at the first street. You will notice some interesting sculpture of fingers holding up the corner of the building... it is an art shop. Once you turn left you will cross the bridge and continue go forward. Then you can either go up the stairs that you will reach at the end of the bridge OR if you prefer an easier way, turn to the left and walk a few minutes and then turn to the right at the first street (see the map for this option). It will lead you slightly uphill until you reach a small parking area. Once there, turn to the left... after a minute you will see an orange house on your left side and then the street will start to go downhill.

If you decide to go up the stairs, once you reach the top just go forward, through the parking area and continue past the orange house until you find us.

If you want, you can call us upon arrival and we can organize a taxi for you. The cost for a taxi from the station is approximately 140kc for the car. It's worth it if there are many people in your group to share the cost. Directions for those who prefer to walk are shown below.
