Be sure to check your timing when purchasing online, as you can adjust the date on which your pass begins.

Know Before You Go
Austrians place a lot of emphasis on family and improving the lives of workers. That means many shops, particularly grocery stores but also other retail places, are rarely open as late as their American counterparts. While most grocery stores now stay open till 7:30pm (a relatively recent change), the majority are closed on Sundays.
