Visit Vienna on a Budget

Visit Vienna on a Budget

Vienna is not a cheap city, but it's always possible to save money and enjoy your trip on a budget by doing a little bit of forward planning.

Book your flights and hotel in advance

Booking your flights and your hotel in advance can save you a lot of money. Use our hotel search engine to find the best offers. Most hotels allow you to cancel up to a day before your arrival, and many let you pay when you get there.

Tourist passes

Depending on the sites that you want to visit, the best way of saving money on your trip can be to use one of the city's tourist passes. Vienna has two good options.

Which to choose?

The Vienna Pass is the most comprehensive option, as it includes skip the line access to the city's main places of interest, and can also be combined with an unlimited public transport option. Meanwhile, the Vienna Card automatically includes unlimited public transport use, and offers discounts on entrance fees to museums and other attractions.

Public transport

While Vienna's public transport network is not too expensive, you can still save money with travelcards. If you don't want the benefits of a tourist card, you can instead buy a travel pass for one or more days.
