We had a nice stroll from the Praterstern U-stop up to the Vienna School of Economics (WU), enjoyed the sight of the closed attractions and reminiscences of childhood. Peaceful and very nice.

November is not the best time to visit. However when I visited a few days ago, Christmas stalls were being set up. I recommend visiting afternoon when more may be happening around the wheel and once the coloured lights are on it would appear more attractive. The wheel and its history are interesting and the display as you go in... More

The view from Above is perfect. although it takes a bit of time but it's worth it . i saw in the cabin across ours, a table with a white drape, red flowers in a heart shape and some balloons.. assume it's for a proposal wouldn't mind my future husband to steal this idea!

November is probably not the best timing to visit the Prate park as many attractions are closed and it is cold and might be rainy. However I went there solely for the more than centenary wheel, which is still working. The wheel's tour lats approximately 15mn and it gives a breathtaking view of Vienna. Was not disappointed.

A necessary entertainment for warmer days. what's not to love? The ticket queuing was not that bad, the mechanics of the park is reliable and well kept, ice cream and thrill available in abundance. Good for children, healthy for grownups. A grand park for lazy strolls or walkabout with your dog. Much air.

If you enter Wiener Prater from across the street to the opposite side of the train station, you will find a lot of attractions which have opened for the whole summer season. It's nice but it's like a park full of attractions. But as a tip: I can suggest to go further through the park and at the end you... More

Absolutely loved this place, the ghost train was really scary and so was the tallest ride. Plus an ice cream for a euro and roast pork for lunch fantastic

We had lots of fun on an early October afternoon at the Prater. Walking around the park and admiring the rides etc. Took the Giant Ferris Wheel ride and loved the views. Had a great late lunch at Zum Englischen Reiter. Was a bit crowded due to the additional beerhall tents at Octoberfest . Free entry but pay for rides,... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
