331 reasons for one card
Nice regular guests of us have inspired me to today's blog. They have told us that they already bought the Niederösterreich-CARD (Lower Austria Card), because there are many things you can vistit with that card in Vienna and Lower Austria . Having already heard and read a little bit about this card I now became even more curious what this card has to offer.
Cards with benefits
I have to admit, I'm a personal fan of such cards, whether it is the Niederösterreich-CARD, the Vienna Card or the Viennapass. Pay once and then enjoy all the benefits.
So why am I now writing you about the Niederösterreich-CARD? As I said, I had already heard a little bit about it and also saw several times the advertising, but so far I assumed that it only included attractions and excursions in Lower Austria, but this is not the cas. Even in Vienna you have more than 20 attractions that you can visit. Pay just once for the card and then get free admission to all attractions. That's a great deal.
What is now waiting for you in Vienna?
In Vienna, there are currently 21 attractions for you to visit and enjoy for free with the card. Among these are, for example:
- the Lower Belvedere
- the Giant Ferris Wheel (Riesenrad)
- a tour with the Vienna Ring Tram
- the House of Music
- the morning work of the Spanish Riding School
- a historical journey through the history of Austria in Vienna Time Travel
- Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum
and much more. But just take a look on the website of the Niederösterreich-CARD to see what else is waiting for you here in Vienna.
Discover Lower Austria
As the name of the card says, its primarily targets in Lower Austria are just waiting to be discovered by you. The list of all attractions and opportunities can be found on the website of the Niederösterreich-CARD.
There are of course also many interesting places that you can easily reach from Vienna. So quite ideal if you're planning a trip or just want to get to know the surroundings of Vienna. Since the choices are huge, here are a few examples of what you can see nearby:
- spend a day in the Roman spa in Baden
- in Klosterneuburg marvel at the Essl collection at the Essl Museum
- take a tour of your choice through the beautiful Klosterneuburg Abbey, Melk Abbey or the Cistercian Abbey Stift Heiligenkreuz
take a trip to Schloss Hof and Carnuntum
- make a cruise on the Danube from Tulln to Dürnstein and back again....
and so much more. For total there are more than 330 attractions waiting for you and also for children many exciting things can be found.
In addition to free admission to all the attractions the card offers you even more advantages like discounts on theatre and concerts, events, mobility partners as well as a bonus point program.
Organizational stuff in the end
I think you are now very curious, where to get the card and what it costs?
Prices for 2015/2016 are:
Adults EUR 55, young people from 6 - 16 years EUR 25 and children are free of admission when accompanied by a Niederösterreich-CARD holder.
You can buy the card easily either online in the online shop or at one of the selling places. The list can be found on the Niederösterreich-CARD page. The card is valid for 1 year lasting from 1st April till 31st March the following year.
So I think the offer of Niederösterreich-CARD is really awesome, especially if you want to explore the surroundings of Vienna or just are in the mood making an excursion.
