Hi all,
Join me for this nice and relaxed sightseeing trip to the neighborhood 😎.

We will meet at 7,50h Protected content

Depending on number of people, we will take Einfach-Raus-Radticket (2 persons/43€ - 3p/47€ - 4p/51€ - 5p/55€).
Please be on time if you want to be included in the group ticket – we have only a short window to sort this out.

Total distance is around Protected content , flat terrain, mainly dirt trails and gravel. It is not suitable to go with the city bike or road bike, any other type of bike is ok.

Route goes mainly through woods and parkland, crossing river Thaya and Czech border and passing through Breclav on our way.
We’ll stop for a brake and/or picnic at Janův hrad (John’s castle – a hunting lodge in the ruins of the old castle), shortly before reaching grounds of Lednice castle.
There we can walk around the lake/pond and climb to a Minaret (viewing-tower built in the Moorish style) to enjoy a view of the area.
The whole area is a world heritage site. You can take a look at a few pictures from the last year trip.

*IMPORTANT*
1) We will be crossing country border, so pls take care that you have all the appropriate documents (passport, visa) with you, just in case.

2) We can only pay with Czech crowns, so if you have some at home, bring it with you. We will stop at the ATM in Breclav. If I remember correctly, minimum amount to withdraw was 20 EUR.

I would suggest to take some food/snacks/drinks with you and maybe some small blanket, as there are plenty of beautiful spots to have a picnic. There will be of course also opportunities to buy food/drinks.
