FAQ about the World HeritageCard
The following answers to frequently asked questions should help our guests to better understand our guest card. They explain individual points in the guidebook and other program information of the World Heritage Region Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg e.V.
The World HeritageCard gives you free admission as well as discounts and gifts at 115 tourist attractions in the Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg World Heritage Region. The card is always valid for one person. If you would like to take advantage of a service (for example, a visit to the asisi panorama in Wittenberg), show your card at the ticket office, it will be scanned and you will receive free admission.
You also don’t have to use the World HeritageCard immediately after purchase – the validity period is from 01.01.2020 to 31.12.2020! The card is activated only after the first use of a service.
The validity period of the World HeritageCard runs from 01.01. until 31.12.2021. There are two different types of cards, the 24 hour card and the 3 day card.
The 24-hour card is valid for 24 hours from the first use.
Example: You visit the Melanchthon House in Wittenberg on 20.01.2021 at 11:00 am. From this point on, the 24 hours run backwards. So you can still visit the Asisi Panorama at 10:00 am the following day.
The 3-day card can be used on 3 freely selectable days within the validity period. The 3 days do not have to be consecutive.
Example: You visit the Melanchthon House in Wittenberg on 20.01.2021 at 11:00. From this moment the first day of validity begins. You can still use other services until the end of 20/01/2021. If you go to Bauhaus in Dessau on 21/01/2021 at 10:00 and scan your card there, the second day of validity would start.
