If you visit Vienna then this place is an absolute MUST. It is part of the Austrian heritage and therefor is as important as all other attractions in the city.

We saw the Ferris wheel from the tour bus around the city, and had to take a cab back to see it but it was well worth the trip. The wooden car look so fragile.

Fabulous structure with wooden cabins. Very smooth ride with good views. Prater amusement park however was partly closed and once you have been on the wheel there is nothing scenic to stay for.

We walked around this old fashioned fun fair after enjoying the Ferris Wheel. It is a throwback to bygone times with none of the really big scary rides. Although it was November there were very few rides closed. The park itself was beautiful despite being autumn and I imagine in the summertime a great place to just sit and read.... More

It is one of those places, where you can have old fashioned fun. We got there early in the day, so it was not very crowded. The tweens, teens and adults all enjoyed themselves. There is something for everyone to do. Lots of food to try. You can almost picture the ladies walking with their bustle and parasols.

I went in autumn and it's not the best time of the year to visit it, but I loved the place. Some attractions are closed from November to March so I guess the best time to visit is summer. There are lots of attractions for all ages. I had so much fun there.

The Park in the middle of the city is vast with many pathways, lawns, trees, park benches and was full of activity with cyclers, runners and walkers. Very peaceful and serene, clean and safe. The amusement park was a blast, like being a little kid again. Go on the ferris wheel for the absolute best view of the city. Lots... More

We went to Austria in december and we wanted to visit Prater also. It is not the best time to visit it, because the main attractions were closed due to the weather conditions. The ferris wheel was open so we take the ride for the nice view.

The best part of the Prater is no doubt the traditional and worldf-amous ferris wheel, boasting whole enclosed bvacins for riders rather than just seats in the open. The view from the top of the ferris wheel across the city and beyond is stupendous, and very well worth it. If you are used to American amusement parks, the restif the... More
