Tax-free benefits in kind in the Ruhr region with the Pott-Card

Whether for a visit to the Carl colliery in Essen, a visit to the U in Dortmund or a visit to the zoo in Duisburg - the Pott-Card is a reliable companion. But the credit on the Pott-Card can be used not only to discover the region's many cultural sites. It can also be spent on a fine dinner at the Golden Anker in Dorsten or at the Thai next door. Prefer to cook at home? No problem, the Pott-Card credit can also be spent at the owner-operated Edeka next door. Those who prefer to rest in their cars despite the well-developed rail network are also in luck, because the Pott-Card is of course also accepted at regional gas stations.
