Christmas Niederösterrich-CARD offer

A special Christmas edition of the Niederösterreich-CARD has been released entitling users to 3 extra months of savings and offers in Lower Austria and Vienna.

The Niederösterreich-CARD offers users free entry to over 300 tourist destinations in Lower Austria and savings of around 2 Euro on entrance fees to selected attractions across the country. It also entitles card holders to savings when booking train journeys with ÖBB.

Minister for Tourism in Lower Austria Dr Petra Bohuslav said: "People who want to give those they love a year of culture, nature and fun to be remembered, should get them the Christmas edition of the Niederösterrich-CARD.

Managing director of the Niederösterreich-CARD intiative Christiane Windsperger MSc said: "The Christmas edition of the Niederösterreich-CARD is available until 31 December 2012 from the online shop at www.niederoesterreich-card.at or from the information hotline on 01/535 05 05. In addition, it can be found at all Raiffeisen banks in Vienna and Lower Austria and also at numerous newsagents stores in both Vienna and Lower Austria."

For existing card holders there is also a Christmas voucher available to extend the validity of their Niederösterreich-CARD.

Two teenage girls go missing as they fly from Austria to fight in Syria
Two teenager girls who say they have left Austria to fight in Syria have trigged an international search operation from the Austrian police. The two - a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old - left identical letters behind telling their families goodbye and that "we will meet in in Paradise". The letters told of their plans to go to Syria to "fight for Islam". The parents of the girls reported that their children had gone missing last week and since then the police tracked them to Turkish city of Adana, where they had flown to from Austria - after that the police lost track of the girls. Adana is 75 miles northwest of Aleppo, a city that became a major battleground during the civil war taking place in Syria. Police spokesman Thomas Keiblinger say that the police are taking the farewell letters "very seriously" and are now conducting an international search for two teenage girls who left farewell letters announcing plans to "fight for Islam" in Syria. Both girls come from families who immigrated from Bosnia but have not been fully identified by Austrian police.
