The pass will become activated upon first use at an attraction. It works by scanning a barcode which will activate the card at first use. This simple system means users can visit their chosen attractions* at ease, without the hassle of queuing to buy tickets.
Depending on your selected pass duration – 1, 2, 3 or 6 days – the pass is then valid for consecutive calendar days from activation. Once the pass has expired, the card will stop working and you will no longer be granted entry into any sight or attraction. Please date and sign your pass at the space provided, otherwise it is not valid.
If you select the travel package, your travelcard will become activated when you validate it in the blue ticket-punch machine in tube stations, trams or on buses and will then be valid for consecutive 24, 48 or 72 hours.
*The Vienna PASS allows single entry into the attractions, except for the HOP ON HOP OFF VIENNA SIGHTSEEING buses, which can be used unlimited for the entire duration of your Vienna PASS.
Don’t forget the Vienna PASS works on a consecutive day basis, so if you first use your pass in an attraction or on the HOP ON HOP OFF VIENNA SIGHTSEEING TOURS bus on your first day, this will count as the first day of your pass duration. It's best to start using your pass first thing in the morning to make the most out of your Vienna PASS.
