8:00/8:30/9:00AM You will be picked up at your Danube river cruise ship location at Linz.
The drive from Linz to Český Krumlov is only 1hour 15 minutes therefor I believe even later start might be still giving you enough time to explore Český Krumlov and enjoy its medieval streets. The drive is very scenic and enjoyable.
Arrive to Český Krumlov and enjoy 2 hour private walking tour:
