Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations

On this trip we spend two nights at the historic Hotel Ruže, a former Jesuit monastery from the 16th century, and two nights at Schloss Durnstein, a 17th-century castle. Guest rooms in these hotels are clean and comfortable, but smaller and simpler than the typical Backroads standard. We've chosen these properties because of their ideal locations and unique historic character.

Shuttles

To bring you to our favorite parts of the Czech Republic and Austria, we make liberal use of shuttles on this trip. So although you'll see the inside of the Backroads van for an hour or so on most days, consider it an opportunity to view some spectacular scenery while resting your legs in preparation for your next ride.
