Vienna to Hallstatt and finish in CK

Hi,

I am thinking of taking a day trip to Hallstatt from Vienna -early morning and finish in Cesky Krumlov in early September. I will stay over night in CK n take late bus/ train to Prague next day.

Is it doable?

What’s the Quickest and cheapest way to get there.

Thank you and looking forward to your input.

Hello!

It is doable by train: in Austria you can travel with ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) until Ceske Budejovice. From this town to Cesky Krumlov you can travel with Regio Jet.

Thanks Romana and roefamily UK.

If I can’t cover Hallstatt and Cesky Krumlov in 2 days what’s other option

Is it better to base myself in Salzburg and take a day trip to Hallstatt and overnight in Salzburg

And catch train/bus to Cesky Krumlov next day and stay overnight in CK.

Austria is such a beautiful country.

I have been to Salzburg before and I really want to cover Hallstatt this time but not lots of time....

Thank you

From Vienna you could travel to Bad Ischl by train. Stay there overnight and see Hallstat----just 20 mins by train and ferry---before travelling on to Cesky Krumlov the day after. It would give you chance to take a look around Bad Ischl too.

It is impossible to realize this undertaking by public transport. But you could book direct transportation from Hallstatt to Cesky Krumlov with a CK-based transport company. Here is a recent thread about the very same topic:

Another option would be staying in Linz, from there it is easy to go to Hallstatt and to Cesky Krumlov by private shuttle (probably the next day).
