• A trip by “rail motor coach” to the end station in Litomyšl is a romantic all-day trip; however, we tend to recommend traveling to the Česká Třebová station by certain domestic “fast trains” or trains on international routes.

• From Česká Třebová, you can continue on by Shuttle service, taxi, or bus.

Shuttle service Škoda Auto

• We offer festival ticket holders free transportation from accommodation within 20 km of Litomyšl’s surrounding area and from the Česká Třebová train station.
