3. Brief Description and Conclusion:


With the Flexi Pass you have to choose the number of attractions and not the validity period, as it is usual with other sightseeing passes. Every variant of the Flexi Pass is valid for 30 days from the time of activation. Depending on the variant, you can visit 3, 4 or 5 attractions. Thus, it is a kind of flexible combination ticket, where you can choose from around 30 attractions. Among those is a 24 hours ticket for a hop-on hop-off bus tour with a free guided city walk. A perfect way to get a good overview of the highlights in Vienna. In addition, you will receive an attractive price advantage with the combination of the hop-on hop-off bus tour and the available attractions. Unfortunately you will not find the Schönbrunn Palace and the Hofburg combination ticket (with the Silberkammer, the Sisi museum and the Imperial Apartments) in the selectable sights.

  •   about 30 attractions
  •   hop-on hop-off bus tour
  •   30 days period of validity
  •   free cancellation possibility
  •   without Schönbrunn Palace ticket
  •   without Hofburg combo ticket

Price Tip! The Flexi Pass Vienna offers an attractive price advantage for the combination of a hop-on hop-off bus tour together with the available attractions. You get a flexible combo ticket for up to 5 attractions. The Schönbrunn Palace and the Hofburg can only be admired from the outside at the hop-on hop-off bus tour. If you would like to see those sights from the inside, the Vienna Pass should be an interesting alternative. More information about it can be found at the city card review.
