The Malše is a river in Austria and in the Czech Republic, and a right tributary of the Vltava.
The Malše originates on the north slope of Viehberg, near the village of Sandl in Bezirk Freistadt, Upper Austria. It flows northward and forms of Austria-Czech border before fully entering the Český Krumlov District of South Bohemia near Dolní Dvořiště. Other communities along the Malše include Rychnov nad Malší, Kaplice, Římov, and Doudleby.
In the city of České Budějovice, the Malše joins the Vltava River .
