  1. Hi,

    my friend and me want to travel to vienna from 18 of April, for 4 days, we are student and under 25, we want to know that is there any special offer(discount ticket) for museum and opera and parks for our case?

    thank you

  2. Dear Sadegh,

    thank you for your enquiry. There are usually discounted student tickets available in museums and other cultural institutions. The Vienna State Opera sells stance tickets for just a few Euros. See more tips for the opera under http://www.vienna-unwrapped.com/vienna-state-opera/

    If you plan to visit at least four cultural institutions and use public transport at least once per day, consider buying a Vienna Card, the discount city card for Vienna: http://www.vienna-unwrapped.com/vienna-travel-card/

    All of Vienna’s parks are free.

    By the way, if you travel in the summer, bear in mind that Vienna has a few free excellent drinking water stations across town, for example at Heldenplatz and Karlsplatz. They will save you a little bit on buying water in cafes or shops.

    I hope this helps. Do let me know if you need anything else.

    kind regards

    Barbara
