Berlin Tourist Discount Cards
Visitors to Berlin are spoiled for choice with three different discount cards providing unlimited travel on Berlin´s extensive public transport network as well as discounts to many of Berlin´s tours and attractions. These are the “Berlin City TourCard” and the “Berlin WelcomeCard”.
The Berlin City Tourcard is the cheaper of the two but only offers discounts on around 50 attractions around Berlin. The Berlin WelcomeCard on the other hand will get you discounts on more than 200 businesses around town.
We have provided links to each card´s brochure so you can check out the included discounts. If you will be using it mainly for the transport ticket we would recommend saving a couple of euros by getting the City TourCard. However, if you have a full sightseeing and attraction itinerary planned, you could save yourself a lot more by picking up a Berlin WelcomeCard.
In addition, for museum lovers, the Museum Pass Berlin is an absolute winner, allowing you free entry into 50 of Berlin´s museums for 3 days. Public transport is not included.
