The Advent 2022 bus entry ticket

Vienna Christmas markets

International bus companies can purchase the day ticket online starting on 24 October 2022 (the link is active from this day). The Advent 2019 bus entry ticket costs € 45.00 and must be paid for in advance by credit card.

Information required in the electronic form:

  • License number
  • Selected day of validity (26 November, 3, 10 and 17 December 2022)
  • Selected time period for collecting the guests

The Advent 2022 bus entry ticket will then by sent as a PDF file by email, together with information about the allocated parking space. The ticket must be printed out and mounted in a clearly visible place on the inside of the bus windscreen.

This ensures that the bus can enter the zone and that passengers and be picked up and set down without presenting an obstacle to private transport. A maximum of 300 buses can make use of the central picking up and setting down point on Museumsplatz on each Saturday in Advent. Free parking spaces are available for these 300 buses. It is not possible to enter the bus zone on Saturdays without an Advent 2022 bus entry ticket.

If you have not received an Advent 2022 bus entry ticket:

  • Picking up and setting down point at Praterstern U1 and U2
  • Bus park at Prater Messe (U2) / entry on Perspektivstrasse (parking charges apply)
  • Bus park at Ernst-Happel-Stadion (U2) / Pierre de Coubertin-Platz

Guests who purchase the "All you can ride" ticket can use public transport 24, 48 or 72 hour a day. Please also inform your guests that wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory on public transportation in Vienna.

Austrian bus companies need their own bus entry ticket which is not limited to individual days but valid for one calendar year. The ticket authorizes entry into the bus zone, but does not include the use of the Advent picking up/setting down point on Museumsplatz or the associated free parking spaces. This arrangement is reserved exclusively for buses with the Advent 2022 bus entry ticket. Further information (in German)
