The Prater park is a landmark and a required stop on any tour of Vienna. As a historic amusement park, it has a bit of kitsch and a bit of nostalgia, but also some new and very modern (read: scary) rides, as well as some top multi-media attractions, such as CSI: and Vienna Airlines. The restaurants specialize in traditional Austrian... More

We took the tram #1 to Prater Hauptallee and walked along this tree-lined street to the Riesenrad past the many entertainment rides. It brought back pleasant childhood memories.

First place we went the night we got to Vienna. We went as a couple just to know the place but it was a nice walk and got to taste a bit of Vienna's food and beer. It's a great place to go with kids.

We happened to stroll into this amusement park while killing time for a late afternoon flight. The park is near Praterstern u-bahn station, which is also the station to get the regional train OBB to the airport. There is no entrance fee, unless for the ride, which is good for those who just like to see around. There are many... More

You can reach the Prater with the U1, just a few stops from the city center. There is no fee to enter either parts of the park. The Prater has basically two parts. One part is the amusement park and the other part is the Prater Hauptallee, which is nice and green. If you go to the water slide at... More

one can get there easily with the train, i believe you have to take the U2 train. very close form the station, just across the street. a fun place to be. no need to pay for entry , pay the rides you want to go on. the price ranges around 5 euro to 10,15 euros depending on the ride.

I went to go for the ferris wheel not knowing it was an amusement park as well. I was traveling alone and was fairly sun stroked so I had no desire to go to the amusement park but it looked like a lot of fun. I personally went on the iconic ferris wheel. I loved the view of the entire... More

A nice little ferris wheel ride, great views over Vienna. A bit of a trek from the city centre to get there but in the middle of an amusement park so worth an afternoon trip for a bit of fun.

The Wiener Prater is a large public park in Vienna's 2nd district. Very famous is the "Wurstelprater", an amusement park. Restaurants, shops and other leisure facilities are part of the Prater. The giant wheel is the most important attraction of the Prater.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
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.
