Prices 2023

The official prices from austriaguide.at

Almost all of our prices have not been adjusted since 2018 due to the pandemic. For 2023, therefore, a corresponding increase was carried out taking into account the official inflation.

In the future, there will be an automatic price adjustment for the following year on 1.10. corresponding to the official consumer price index of Statistics Austria. Should inflation exceed 5% on 1.4. of a year, a price adjustment can also be carried out for existing orders.
