Munich is receiving a new touristic product. From August 16th, the official guest cards for Munich will be on sale, making it easier and cheaper for guests to visit museums and to travel by public transport.
The tickets are issued by the company "Turbopass" in cooperation with the City of Munich. A large number of touristic service providers are included. This could be realized through the good cooperation of the Department of Labor and Economics with the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Art, the Bavarian State Ministry of Finance and independent museums.
