Vienna Pass – museums, pass and more
Is the card worth the money? If you do not stand still, then definitely yes. The standard entrance fee to a palace or a museum is from 7-10 to 20 EUR . In addition, Vienna Pass holders skip the line to many places, which helps with the influx of tourists.
The Vienna Pass opens the doors to the Royal Hofburg , the graceful Belvedere and the monumental Schönbrunn with all its many halls. A walk through at least one of these palace complexes, not to mention a visit to art galleries like Albertina , can take a whole day, so you have to move to get at least something else in time. For example, visit the legendary Mozart House , go on a guided tour of the UN office or go on a romantic river voyage along the Danube.
Each attraction from the list can be visited only once.
