After coming through the youth ranks at Admira Wacker, Cerny began his professional career at German giants FC Bayern Munich in 1992–93, making his top division debut on 27 October 1992, in a 1–1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.
Just after the start of the 1993–94 season (he appeared in three matches for the eventual champions), Cerny returned to Admira, where a good league season prompted a move to FC Tirol. During 1995–96, he returned to Munich, but with neighbours TSV 1860 München. In his eleven-year spell, Cerny appeared in 213 first division contests (a club record) scoring 15 goals, while helping it consolidate in the top flight and appear in the UEFA Cup.
