Cesky Krumlov /Melk

We are leaving Cesky Krumlov at 9am to go to Melk also to see Melk Abbey.

I know the train is not the best option for this trip so we will probably take a Shuttle or Private

Car. Our problem is when we get to Melk we are hoping to store our Luggage in the Railway Station

can someone tell me if it's difficult getting around Melk, and to the Abbey without a Car also is

the Town,and Abbey close to the Train Station. Will we have the time to do the Boat Ride

We are only in Melk for the day as we are leaving for Salzburg at about 3PM in the Afternoon

Can someone tell me if leaving Melk we can go to Salzburg by train or is a Shuttle a better idea

Any suggestions, or advice you can give me would be much appreciated

Thanks

You are right that train connection from Cesky Krumlov to Melk will be complicated and take some time I guess. Melk is a small town and easy to get around. The train station provides lockers for luggage. Going to Salzburg by train will take around 2 hrs 30 mins - you must change at St. Poelten for fast train to Salzburg - check: www.oebb.at - there are ships depending on the season and if you can go to Wachau (e.h. Duernstein) I would recommend it. The question is if you will have enough time if you leave Cesky Krumlov at 9 a.m. and you want to go to Salzburg already at 3 p.m.

Are you answering the OP who posted in March or the new contributor who posted today?

There is no bus. Whatever route you take will require 2 or 3 changes.

@Olivia

In any case you need to take the train to Linz and then either...

a) ...continue to Ceske Budejovice by bus or train, from Ceske Budejovice to Cesky Krumlov by train or bus

b) ...take the direct shuttle which needs to be booked in advance

Sorry, my mistake in cutting and pasting and sincere apology. Since we plan to take the same route in this July:Cesky Krumlov to Melk to Salzburg, we are looking for the best transportation option between Cesky Krumlov and Melk. Does anyone know of Shuttle service directly running between these two cities?

Never heard of a service linking Cesky Krumlov and Melk. Only to/from Linz as mentioned above!
