TSD 2016 - How to reach Brno

Brno can be reached easily by direct flights from London, Munich, or Eindhoven and by buses/trains from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. From other places it is convenient to go by plane to Vienna or Prague and then by coach or train (130 km from Vienna, 200 km from Prague) to Brno.

By Plane

There is a small international airport Turany in Brno with flights from London/Stansted, London/Luton, Munich and Eindhoven. Other nearest international airports are Schwechat in Vienna (130km) and Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague (200km). There are good bus/train connections to Brno from there, some airlines even offer direct bus transport to Brno from the airport. Ask your travel agent for this option when buying your plane ticket.

From Vienna airport

An easy bus connection from Vienna Airport to Brno is the one with StudentAgency/RegioJet buses - you can find the timetable at IDOS timetable pages (choose English at the right bottom, enter From: Flughafen Wien, To: Brno and select direct).

A little bit faster connection is via trains, where a changing is required at Wien Hbf. You can find the connection at IDOS pages as well (choose English at the right bottom, enter From: Flughafen Wien, To: Brno).

From Prague airport

There are now no direct connections from the Vaclav Havel Airport to Brno, passengers must always change to train/bus in Prague. The fastest connection is with StudentAgency/RegioJet buses.
