Czech Republic - Austria Sept 1-7
Hi all, new member. Great forum, I have been mining trip reports and suggested routes for a ride coming up very shortly now. Starting in Prague with a few days R&R without the bike, then starting Sept 1 circling from Prague - Cesky Krumlov - Salzburg (2 nights) - Graz - Vienna (2 nights) - Prague on Sept 7. The map I have so far is:

1. Is it easy to find hotels in the Cesky Krumlov - Salzburg - Graz legs? I will have a hotel booked in Prague and in Vienna but am leaving the other places open to give some flexibility in the plan. I saw the one report where the guy did a lot of pensions, are these really just as easy as driving up the afternoon you want to stay and asking if they have room? Can you find them near the city in Salzburg?
2. On the route from Prague to Cesky, I have seen the desired route is to go up into the hills in the Sumava park, does it make the day driving from Prague to Cesky too long to loop over through there on the way down?
3. Any suggestions on improving ride from Cesky to Salzburg?
4. I'm pretty good I think from Salzburg to Graz and Graz to Vienna, thanks again for the posts.
5. Final leg is one day from Vienna to Prague. Seems a bit of a drive and I will be dropping off the bike at the end of that day. Any recommendations on quick stops along the way? Maybe someplace for a nice lunch?
6. Rather than 2 days in Salzburg, is it worth a run over to the Dolomites? So make it Salzburg - Dolomites - Graz?
7. Parking in Vienna (and I imagine other cities?) hotels is expensive!!! EUR32 per day. Any ideas on avoiding parking? I could stay outside the city a bit, and then take public transit into the city to be a tourist?
I like history, food, great views ... maximum I want to be on the bike is 4 hours per day. As you see I have a couple days in there off the bike.
Thanks for any and all advice.
