The main attraction is not very imprssive. The amusment park it's self is nice and a good place spend the afternoon with the kids. One thing about the area. it looks very dodgy. especialy the nearest underground station. Beware if you travel with small kids. Kepp them close.

If you have teenagers who like theme parks then this the place for you. Pay per ride so no entrance fee if you just want to walk around and watch as people fly off into the air or if it's a Saturdays look at vintage cars.

The Prater is awesome, just ot wander around or to relax and watch the world go by in the park or people going on rides, you only have to purchase tickets for rides you want to go on so anyone can go and enjoy a few hours there even if you don't like going on the rides.

We visited the Prater to see the famous ferris wheel, featured in the classic 'Third Man' film, which was worthwhile for us. Like most places in Vienna, access by public transport is very easy. The fun fair is sited in a large park and there is plenty to see and do if you like white knuckle rides, and arcade games.... More

This is an awesome Amusement Park, that can easily be found, once you are in Vienna. Ensure that you have your Camera with you, and whether you go with children or not, you will have an excellent, memorable time for sure there! And whatever your age may be. The Ferris Wheel is the "mascotte" of this Park, but you can... More

Popped in here when we left the zoo. A giant funfair with some fast rides. You pay for the rides individually and the prices vary but can add up very quickly if you are not just paying for yourself (kids) but certainly worth a visit.

Visited a couple of times - went on the Ferris Wheel which gave us great views of Vienna. Fairly short ride - approx 15 minutes I think. We went on a few of the rides as we had some discounted vouchers. Fairly busy but ok. Food and drink reasonable - good day out for the family.

It's a nice park, you can choose to stay sit in the green grass enjoy the time or play in some arcades. Don't miss the Ferris Wheel and enjoy whole Vienna from above!

As soon as we arrived to Vienna we headed to the Prater. Easy access from the subway, a 1 minute walk. Walk into the park have some fresh air or a stroll, kids can play games and take rides on at the amusement park, It wasn't overly too busy either maybe as there was a bit of drizzle through out...

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.
