Scenario B - by car

1 / Battle of Austerlitz Landmarks


Scenario A - hiking / on bike

Šlapanice (Žuráň)/Sokolnice – Peace Monument – following the yellow sign to Hostěrádky-Rešov – Zbýšov – Křenovice – Slavkov u Brna (Austerlitz)

If you choose the trail either hiking or riding a bike (available also for children on a safe bike trail) start from the village of Šlapanice - you can get there by trolley-bus from Brno. First you should climb up the Žuráň Hill – there is the best view upon the whole battlefield area and you will also find there a map with details on the three armies´ battle positions.

You should devote more time to exploring the Peace Monument – its expositions are very interesting and there will be enough time left to manage the rest of the itinerary. There is a new yellow sign that would lead you to Hostěrádky-Rešov and then following the railroad, you will get to Zbýšov. You can join the Educational trail of the Three Emperors that will lead you to Křenovice – a place that is full of sights linked with Napoleon, e.g. a monument to General Kutuzov, a commemorative board on the wall of Spáčil´s Farm (No. 65) – a place where the pre-battle meeting of the Allies took place. And from there - you can move on by train wherever you need.

Note: You can start your hiking or biking trip also in Sokolnice – there is an easy access there by train from Brno. You will climb up to the Peace Monument from the railway station and then you will follow the same trail.
