What is the quickest route from Cesky Krumlov to Linz?
Via the 160/161/128
AA route planner is also very good....
As Hana says, Kaplice, Dvoriste (E55) is the usual way, and I expect the Krumlov shuttles take this route.
But, if you want to see other parts of southern Czech Republic then take the other route via Rozmberk and Vyssi Brod....a lovely drive mostly alongside Vltava river, then cross the border at Studanky.
In terms of driving, both distances are about the same, but as a tourist you will find Kaplice route easier to navigate. Depends on the time of day, the weather and how good you are with maps:)
Driving Kaplice, Dvoriste and E55 to Linz you need austrian highway vignette (there are no tolls on the way) - last part of route is on the highway. You need it even for driving highway inside Linz city. You can easily buy it in CR in fuel stations or in Austria.
As Tilly wrote, route via Rozmberk (nice castle) and Studanky (border) is nice and you dont need any vignette (except mentioned highway inside Linz).Edited: 20 April 2012, 22:38
It is cheaper to buy the Austrian vignette at one of the Austrian fuel stations, where they really charge you 8 EUR (~200 CZK) for the 10 day vignette. The price at Czech fuel stations ranges from 250 to 300 CZK (~10 - 12 EUR) - at least in Cesky Krumlov.
Thanks for the tips. I think I'll take the E55 route since I want the fastest and easiest route. I was planning to buy the Austrian vignette at the first service station after crossing the border.
That mapy.cz website does seem to highlight the major routes on the map better than Google maps. Nicer cartography like a road atlas. Too bad I don't read Czech...
Enjoy your trip to Czech Republic.
