Perfect! Very practical, no ticket to collect except for Schonnbrun and skip-the-line everywhere we went (Albertina, Sissi museum, belvedere…) Small flat for the unlimited bus concerning the end of the day hours: 5 p.m.…

Great tool. We jumped the queues countless times it happens in the busiest places. Especially in the most beautiful and iconic monuments. Also convenient for the hop on hop off.

Access to the visit of a whole series of places for which access is facilitated ... Bus Hop-en-Off very interesting for visits outside the city center ...

Very interesting visit. Better to be documented on its Habsburg dynasty before making the visit.

Indispensable to visit and discover all that Vienna has to offer.
