Redeem the Niederösterreich-CARD at the Schneebergbahn

You can redeem your Niederösterreich-CARD directly in the Schneebergbahn ticket shop - all you have to do is enter the card number in the ticket shop, which you will find either in the Niederösterreich-CARD app, or on the back of your physical Niederösterreich-CARD.

Please note that your Niederösterreich-CARD is cancelled when used in the ticket shop. It is therefore necessary to book the ascent and descent in one transaction.

Further information on the Lower Austria CARD

  • One child under 6 years of age per CARD holder is carried free of charge as a lap seat (without entitlement to a seat). The Niederösterreich-CARD-Mini (Child Card) is excluded from this.
  • The Niederösterreich-CARD can only be used once per season - regardless of whether you take a ride up and down the mountain or just a one-way trip (e.g. only up the mountain).
  • When redeeming your Niederösterreich-CARD in the ticket shop, please make sure to book the ascent and descent in one transaction.
