The palace is beautiful inside and outside. The biggest disappointment is that the garden is obviously neglected as the weeds are outgrowing the real plants. The dried and dead plants are still on the garden beds and the plants are not being watered. If they cannot maintain the place then they should not open this for paid tourists. I like... More

We bought a combi ticket for the train and the Ferris wheel . It was just about OK! The view was nice from the Ferris wheel. Kids were not interested in the other rides so we walked around for a bit. I would suggest going only if you want to do the rides but be ready to shell out average... More

Lots to see, a lot to do. Kids and adults will love it. Can get expensive after a while - there's a fee for everything! Some attractions are insanely expensive! Make sure to have a lot of time, otherwise you won't see much. Nice atmosphere with plenty of bars, restaurants and grills.

It is an amusement park which has free entrance, you have to pay for each attraction seperately, in my eyes the prices for the attractions are quite high. Some of the rides are spectacular and new, other are old and look tired. All in all the price-quality was not acceptable. What I noticed in the evening was that quite a... More

We visited the Prater on a very hot tuesday morning in July. Although not all the rides were open, our kids had good fun. Please expect a pricy visit; some rides (sometimes just less than two minutes of fun) cost up to eur 5,- pp! Furthermore, bring a visit in the evening. Cooler and everything is nicely lit. Leave the... More

Been there as one of those "to be checked" points, in my first trip to Vienna, some years ago, and never returned :) There's a nice view over the city from the Wheel and you can have a good "brauner" (coffee) under the trees. Children would appreciate the amusing park but, as an adult, I'm not a great fan.

We had a small amount of time, so we only rode the Prater Wheel. It was nice, the car was roomy & not crowded. I was able to take some great pictures if Vienna from the top. Next visit we will make time for the whole amusement park.

We were on a Danube River cruise and stopped early evening in Vienna. I am a fan of the movie The Third Man and am taken by the scene at the end ... Orson Wells meeting Joseph Cotton on that ferris wheel.. No way was I going to be this close to it and not , at the very least... More

The wheel of the park is meters high and gives a fantastic view of the town. There is a good trip with lilliputian ban train, so you can see how very big is the park... And how green it is. The negative is that there are very expensive tickets, that lot of staff especially with shooting targets try to get... More

We spent a lovely long sunny day at Prater Park the last week of May 2014. Only 1 big part of this park is an amusement park. There is lots more to see. Be sure to walk away from the fairgrounds where all the rides and games are and discover this lovely park. The amusement park was fun. At times... More
