How to Spend 3 Days in Cesky Krumlov

How to Spend 3 Days in Cesky Krumlov

Český Krumlov combines a riverside setting with cobbled streets and Renaissance architecture. Add must-visit museums and great restaurants to the mix and you’ve got one of the Czech Republic’s top destinations. Here’s how to spend three days in Český Krumlov.

Day 1: Must-See Sights

A great way to get acquainted with Český Krumlov’s main landmarks is on a sightseeing tour. Tours typically visit Český Krumlov Castle, the Gothic church of St.Vitus, and the town's historical city center. If you’re particularly interested in the castle, pick a tour that includes a visit to its interiors—some even include a skip-the-line admission ticket. Alternatively, evening tours reveal the UNESCO-listed town when illuminated and let you explore without the daytime crowds.

In the evening, check out the restaurant scene in town. Le Jardin at the Hotel Bellevue is a local favorite, while U Dwau Maryi is famed for its generous Old Bohemian Feast, which features some of the Czech Republic’s most traditional dishes.

Day 2: Cultural Immersion

The Vltava River—which connects Český Krumlov to the Czech capital of Prague—is easily accessible from town, so start the morning with some tubing, rafting, or boating.

After an energetic start to the day, dive into regional history and culture. Don a hard hat and ride an electric wagon through the Czech Republic's last graphite mine on a tour of the Graphite Mine or admire a to-scale model of Český Krumlov at the turn of the 19th century at The Regional Museum. The Egon Schiele Centrum Museum is dedicated to the work of the Viennese artist who briefly resided in the town, while the Marionette Museum, housed in the former Church of St Jošt, displays Czech marionettes and puppets.

Day 3: Take a Trip

Though many travelers only visit Český Krumlov, there’s much more to see in the South Bohemia region. České Budějovice, which is home to the original Budweiser Budvar Brewery, is just a 30-minute drive from Český Krumlov. Every afternoon, the brewery runs 60-minute tours that guide visitors through the manufacturing process of Budvar, from the brewing system to tasting. Conclude your visit to the brewery with a meal and a few brews in the Budvarka restaurant, which serves Czech cuisine.

If you’re a history buff, visit the Gothic, 13th-century Hluboká Castle, which is a 40-minute drive from Český Krumlov. Some tours visit both the castle and the brewery in a single day trip. However you spend your day, leave time in the evening to toast your three days in Český Krumlov with a drink at one of its best bars, such as Apoteka Café Bar or Zapa Bar.
