Located on the other part of the city, this park entrance is free, but every rides is very expensive and very short (from 4 Eur - 15 Eur for a couple seconds). You need to wait to make a group for some rides, they don't want to ride a couple of you, only a bigger group of people. It is... More

Theme park to end all theme parks. Lots to do for people of all ages? Rides and food reasonably priced. A few modern rides but the historical ones such as reisenrad Ferris wheel make the prater an historical and entertainment experience. Underground and bus routes very close. Free entry to park.

No visit to Vienna is complete without a stop at Prater. The historic wheel is definitely the star of the show. You can take some very good photos of Vienna from above. Only negative thing the quite expensive ticket for the wheel and the wax museum.

The Prater is open 24x7 and boasts of a really old ferris wheel about 115 meters high. The rides are reasonably priced but can be found in any other city as well. If you have children and a lot of time in Vienna then this is the place to go, otherwise can be given the miss.

We went their mainly for the historic wheel ride as it is the oldest in the world. It was definitely fun to try and the views from up are worth the ride. There are also other rides and each is individually priced. You can also visit the Madam Tussaud museum while there.

My friends & I were in Vienna in the Fall so it was chilly out when we visited & it was night. It wasn't very busy but it's a nice place to walk around to see the different rides & people watch. It reminded me of a fair.

The Vienna Prater is a nice place to take a walk. The historic wheel is nice although i found the price of the ticket very expensive (9 euros for students). In general, is a pleasant place to spend an hour.

My girlfriend and I went to The Vienna Prater excited to go on a few rides, mainly the more daring ones. We read about the prater card online and saw that it would give us 10% off the rides. Naturally we thought that all rides in the area would take the card. To our horror, we found out that only... More

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.
