Culture and more

There are so many interesting cultural sights and museums that choosing just a few can be a bit of a challenge.

While in Salzburg, make sure to drop by the Museums of Modern Art Rupertinum and Mönchsberg and see their massive photography collection and innovative contemporary art exhibitions – you have 20% off the ticket.

If you feel like seeing something really special, check out the Salzburg Marionette Theatre. Dating back to the early 1900s, the theatre stages a vast repertoire ranging from Mozart operas to Broadway’s The Sound of Music, all brought to life by marionettes! If you need any more incentive to stop by for a performance, just know that you have 10% off your ticket.

If you’re in Salzburg anytime from March to November, you need to check out the baroque Wasserspiele Hellbrunn trick fountains. Your European Youth Card grants you discounts on every ticket.

When in Vienna, music should definitely be part of the experience. First stop: the Haus der Musik, an interactive sound museum where your ticket costs only 8 EUR (over 30% off).

For your experience to be complete, don’t miss the chance to attend a performance by the Vienna Mozart Orchestra in one of the city’s famous concert halls: the State Opera, Musikverein Golden Hall and Konzerthaus. Not only will you have an unforgettable time, you’ll also be paying only 50% of your ticket.

And finally, a special tip for the art buffs: get special prices for both single (8 EUR) and combined tickets (10 EUR) at the Kunst Haus Wien, the only permanent exhibition displaying Friedensreich Hundertwasser's work. It’s definitely worth a visit!

The list is far from over. There are over 700 discounts you can access with your European Youth Card in Austria. See them all here and go for it!
