We took the pass for a week even tho we were there for 5 days. The pass gets you in on a fast track to most but not all places ( for example it's no go for the very popular house of seas aquarium). The...More

The Vienna Pass gives you free and fast access to most of the monuments of the city. At first, it saves you money, because you get a discount visiting a monument instead of buying a ticket at the gate. Then, you get to overtake the...More

The passes are expensive and bring no real benefit to your trip budget. Important sites are excluded, and for the popular ones that are included you still have to wait long lines to get an entrance ticket after showing the pass. But the worst part...More

Had a one day pass. Most attractions are then free and all transport is free. Some attractions allow you to skip the line but most don't and that is a drawback

It pays off the price. You don't need to handle money on every attraction. Simple and effective. You can visit an endless range of things

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’

Vienna Pass (5 Replies)
Hello, We are planning to go to Vienna in July and considering getting the Vienna Pass. It looks like there are tours available in most museums that we would like to take. The question is: 1. Does it make sense to get the pass anyhow or will we end up paying double for the pass and then for the tour? Or will the tour be significantly discounted/free with the pass? 2. I read that you do not really skip the lines is this true? 3. Is the included walking tour worth the time?? TIA!

Salzburg to Hallstatt and Zell am see using german rail pass . Vienna to Melk - Vienna to Durnstein Vienna to Linz using the German Rail pass . Will the German Rail Pass all those places and is it worth our while buying the rail pass . Thank you Trish

Actually the Berlin-Frankfurt leg is the only trip where a GRP would make sense. Munich to Innsbruck can be done for cheap with a Regioticket Werdenfelser Land + Innsbruck (38 EUR for 2 on regional trains), all other train travel is in Austria on trains operated by the Austrian ÖBB for which a German Rail Pass is no good anyway. So, no, you do not need a GRP!

DDSG Danube Canal City Sightseeing Cruise in Vienna: A Scam (5 Replies)
Without checking the various evaluation sites, we bought tickets for a DDSG Danube Canal City Sightseeing Cruise in Vienna, each for €22.00. In our ignorance we thought this was a cruise along the Danube. After one hour of advancing along a narrow and boring canal, the boat turned around and returned to the starting point. We haven't seen the Danube. This was a complete waste of time and money. Later, going through the comments at the Tripadvisor section concerning this cruise, I've...More

A shame you didn’t look on here first. Most of us do not recommend this cruise, or the Vienna Pass either for that matter. Your experience reinforces my will to dissuade people from taking this cruise in the future. And please use TA’s resources yourself in future so you’ll be less likely to be disappointed.
