Many companies and organisations offer you free entry, vouchers or gifts if it’s your birthday. So, be sure to take advantage of them and make your day extra special.
The Kika chain of furniture stores and the Leiner home furnishings store both send you a €10 voucher on your birthday if you’ve signed up for one of their customer cards.

If you have a Tchibo/Eduscho PrivatCard make sure to claim your €10 birthday voucher, plus a voucher for free coffee and cake! The perfume shop Douglas also gives a €10 voucher to loyalty scheme members.
Denn’s organic supermarkets send Denn’s loyalty card holders a €5 voucher in the post.

You also get free entry at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum on your birthday (a saving of €14) - and there’s so much to see, you can spend the whole day there. If you’re feeling peckish after all that art, pop along to Cafe Latte on Neubaugasse in the 7th district where you can choose a free meal or snack of your choice, up to a value of €15.
And if you like surprises, Bellaflora, XXXLUTZ, LIBRO Club and Esprit Friends all give a free surprise gift to loyalty scheme members on their birthdays.
Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!
