The Battle of Písek was a final pummeling of the eastern Habsburg forces that had sought to ouster Wallenstein from Bohemia with the initial siege of Tabor, which became the Battle of Tabor.

Under direct leadership of Wallenstein and Gustav Adolphus, Bohemian and Swedish troops attacked and drove back the Austrian invaders. In a series of skirmishes in and around Písek, it became clear to Gustavus Adolphus that Wallenstein would not be allowed to remain neutral for the duration of the war, should the Habsburgs not be taught a sound lesson.

Following stringent negotiations, the two armies proceeded on to Vienna, for while the Habsburgs had thought the war to be on a winter hiatus, their foolhardy foray to the north had stirred the proverbial hornets nest. While Habsburg forces were otherwise occupied in the west of Germany, they were about to be trounced on their home territory at the Sack of Vienna.
