Znojmo is the wine-growing centre of Moravia and one of the most beautiful historical towns of our country. That is why you should definitely set aside at least a whole day to visit it.
In the Wolf's Tower, visit the VOC Znojmo Information Centre (wines of original certification), which is a trademark for high-quality wines with a typically regional taste profile. On the way to the famous rotunda of St. Martin, which offers a breathtaking view of the historic centre, enjoy a stop at the Enoteca of Znojmo wines with its unique self-service system By the Glass. You can get to know the surrounding wineries by taking a ride on the tourist Vinobus trip.
As soon as you leave Znojmo, you will be greeted by the well-known wine-growing village of Nový Šaldorf with more than 180 wine cellars
And the next morning, step on the pedals! Make your first stop at the Louka Monastery in Znojmo, our national cultural monument. In addition to the wine shop and wine cellars, you will find a picture gallery with wine themes and a cooperage and wine museum.
As soon as you leave Znojmo, you will be greeted by the well-known wine-growing village of Nový Šaldorf with more than 180 wine cellars, many of which are open in summer. There are a number of well-known companies and small family wineries to choose from for tasting sessions.
After Konice, you enter forest and field paths with a beautiful view of the vineyards and the whole region.
After that, the most beautiful forest passage awaits you with a descent to the famous vineyard Šobes. It is one of the oldest and best vineyards in Europe, with a special tasting booth. It's worth it! However, if you have less fit cyclists or children with you, you can skip this stop and bypass the challenging climb. In the wine-growing village Hnanice visit the church of St. Wolfgang from the 15th century and a nice wine alley.
A good man is still alive, he drinks wine in Moravia
After that, another famous wine-growing village Šatov is waiting for you. The biggest tourist magnet here is the Painted Cellar with its unbelievable mixture of charming pictures - it's indescribable, it has to be seen! In the local Moravian cellar you can have a good meal and refreshment. On the way out of Šatov it is also worth mentioning the historical area of the Czechoslovak fortifications and the Iron Curtain with a possible tour of the infantry cabin with its original equipment.
Just along the state border, you will reach a charming and spacious cellar lane in Chvalovice, where you can toast a beautiful cycling experience. You can then turn back to Znojmo, or stay overnight here and continue cycling to another area. And you should sing a Moravian song "A good man is still alive, he drinks wine in Moravia."
