The basics

Visit the Augarten Porcelain Manufactory (Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten) as a stop on a Vienna hop-on-hop-off bus tour or sightseeing Flexi Pass in Vienna, joining the guided tours offered by the manufacturing complex. One wing of the factory houses the Augarten Porcelain Museum, where visitors can see one of the company’s original kilns stretching across both floors of exhibition space. The upper floors are dedicated to galleries illustrating the history of Augarten and Viennese porcelain, with more than 150 pieces on display to show the evolution of the art over the years; hands-on displays let visitors touch samples of the porcelain ingredients kaolin (clay), feldspar (stone), and quartz. The first floor of the museum focuses on the company’s modern porcelain making through the 20th and 21st centuries.

Flexi pass is useful choice for few visits in Vienna
I bought the flexi pass with 4 visits for 2 people. We used it to visit Albertina (fabulous), used the 24-hour hop on hop off buses and the 3 routes blue, red and yellow (very useful) , the Natural History Museum (it was nice) and the Schnonbrunn Palace (the garden was amazing). This card is advantageous if you want to visit a few places and reduce the cost (~ 30-35% less).
