The Vienna Pass - Discover more
I assume you know this situation very well. First time in an exciting, new city, only a few days time to spend there and you would love to see and do everything. So that's why very often a hop on hop off tour is the start for exploring the city to get a first comfortable impression, then a few of the best-known and most famous attractions and sights (because you've already studied the guidebook at home) and maybe a city walk.
And then all those items packed in a schedule where long queuing and waiting is not necessarily one of your favorite pastimes.
So for me it was like that most of the times when I only had a long weekend or a few days in a city. Mostly I planned in advance quite eagerly what to do on each day, tickets if possible already ordered in advance (which takes its time too and unfortunatelly is not always possible) only to see afterwards that being a bit more flexible in my schedule would have been great ....
Queuing and waiting were yesterday
Now, exactly this offer of flexibility and time savings the new Vienna pass, which is available from the 19th of January, offers you. I got a few days ago more detailled information about it as it is really a brand new thing in Vienna and I find the concept really awesome (otherwise I would not write about it ...).
The basic facts
A ticket for 2, 3 or 6 days. Full use of all the lines of the hop on hop off lines of Vienna Sightseeing Tours including trips to Parndorf (shopping!), Carnuntum & Schloss Hof (Archaeology & Imperial heritage) and Grinzing & Klosterneuburg (wine taverns).
Additional free entry to over 60 attractions including Schönbrunn Palace, Albertina, Hundertwasser House, Hofburg, Spanish Riding School, Madame Tussauds, MAK, .... without waiting thanks to a fast lane.
And last but not least also the guided city walks of Vienna Sightseeing Tours.
One card - all inclusive
You are now for sure curious about the costs. For adults EUR 69 for 2 days, 3 days EUR 84 and EUR 99 for 6 days, children from 6-19 years are charged EUR 34.5 for 2 days, for 3 days EUR 42 and EUR 49.5 for 6 days. Up to 6 years children can ride for free with a Vienna pass holders.
I also have a short example for you (you know I used to be a Controller ...) so that you can see that the whole is a very interesting offer (especially the 6 day pass), prices are stated for 1 adult, as of January 2015th
Ticket Hop on Hop Off all lines 48h EUR 29
Entrance fee Schönbrunn Palace EUR 14.5
Albertina EUR 11.9
Time Travel Vienna EUR 18
Madame Tussauds EUR 20.5
Total EUR 93.9
So if you consider a nice program with sightseeing and museums in Vienna, then the Vienna pass quickly pays off once.
Now there is still the question where to get the Vienna Pass?
From us or online you can get the voucher for it which can then be simply replaced by the card at the redemption locations. Furthermore, in the customer service center of the Vienna pass in the Opernpassage or at the web shop at www.viennapass.com
I think this is really a great new offer for our Vienna guests and is ideal for anyone who wants to take many new impressions from Vienna.
