4-Hour Bike Tour in Brno with Guide

Decided on the slight detour from Vienna to Prague to explore Brno. Only 15 minutes out of the way, the driver was interesting with travel through small towns with lots of character.

We stopped at a roadside station and plugged in the "where to go" in Trip Advisor and the Old Town square (Liberty Square in Google Maps) was a wonderful little stop. Surrounded by St Peter's Church, statues, and fountains (local children had a blast playing in the water).

A relatively easy drive to the top, parking was the only challenge. The square had a local farmers market going with tons of vendors selling fresh produce. All around the square were shops to explore. Everyone spoke fluent English which certainly helped as we explored over our brief lunch excursion.

The stop was a wonderful break in the day.

Pleasant part of Brno, they somehow managed to make it feel like a huge beach with music, beach chairs under umbrellas by the fountain, palmtrees and ofc loads of stalls with drinks, food, ice cream etc.

☀️☕️

We enjoyed Brno and especially this part of town; not crowded at all and clean

PS: A lot of great shops and most of them had a 50% discount - yay me

My hotelin Brno was located just off the mains square so I had ample time to wander around and explore the square. The first thing I noticed was this rocket like thing that apparently tells the time. I learned that each day at 11am the locals gather and try and grab balls that come from inside the rocket and these balls are apparently quite collectable. While I was there on the main square there was a Jazz festival with lots of bands so I watched a bit of that. Overall a nice place to visit and lots of hustle and bustle.

The Freedom Square may not be as stylish as some of the squares of Prague, but it has it's own charm and is a great place to have a local (black) beer and see life pass by.
