Easy accessible, nice location, always vivid and positive. The giant ferris wheel is the most interesting part. Ticket costs 9.50eur and one ride lasts around 15minutes. Don't be afraid! You will not feel the stomach since you stay in vertical position all the time and you don't move at all. on the top, you will see Vienna and that's the... More

The Prater is a large public park in Vienna, ideal for spending the day in company of friends or/and family as there are several attractions (i.e. a giant wheel, a rollercoaster, etc.) and restaurants

I had a blast, it was so much fun to ride different rides and feel the adrenaline rush. There is something for all but I chose to ride the really fast ones. If you love rollercoasters make sure to have a go on Ecstasy - its a thrill at 120mph. It spins you round in all directions and when you're... More

As far as we were in Vienna in winter time we didn't see Prater in it's lights and beauty but you can guess how nice it could be in spring or summer time!

Can just see when the trees bloom in the spring in the Prater and one can walk about and enjoy the lovely areas, small buildings and structures and take in a concert from strauss, a treat. Not to forget the big wheel for young and old, you can rent an entire car for a party or just a romantic dinner... More

This is the biggest playground that I've ever seen. We've been there on winter, so there wasn't crowded. I suggest you to visit there on spring or summer. I think it would be more enjoyable.

Had a great time riding the Prater wheel at dusk - the views were fantastic. And it brought back memories of films it played a part in. We really enjoyed our time there On one hand it would have been great to have the atmosphere of the season (we were there in winter) but on the other hand there was... More

I was in The Vienna Prater during the winter. It was dark and windy. I paid sth about 8 eur. I think it's too expensive. It's easy to see beautiful view in Vienna. You can go to Stephansdom and go up in the tower (3,5eur?) or to Kahlenberg or to the bar in the highest building in Vienna. I do... More

The theme park itself looks pretty good, full of some good rides, however we were there when it wasn’t in season so the only ride really running was the Ferris wheel. Plus is was New Years Eve so I’m not sure if they were maybe gearing up for an event and things were opening later… The ferris wheel cost about... More

We went in the last week of December. Most of the attractions were close. We managed to go on the Ferris Wheel and it was a nice experience. The staff was very helpful and kind. However, the cabin was full of scribbles left by tourists.
