We really loved this square and roundabout. The surroundings offer a lot of entertainment for adults and kids alike. We hope the city government decides to preserve this marvel of urban planning.

Over a hundred years old it seems to be a must do for first time visitors of Vienna. The views of the prater amusement park and the city are wonderful. Also pretty cool for movie buffs as it was featured in The Third Man and The Living Daylights. I give it only 4 stars because it is fairly pricey but... More

I had its charms and it belongs to Vienna but we didnt like it. A fair like anywhere else but than from 20 years ago. The ferris wheel is cool... More

Small, dull and not classy at all. After being to the city's Zentrum and high streets this venue is a big thumb down

Vienna naturally does not fail to blend history, a touch of royalty, art and culture at every turn. The Praterstern is no exception. We brought kids with us and enjoyed a spectacular view of the Pratestern from the over 100 year old ferry wheel. It was a fifteen minute ride and at the entrance there are wonderful models of the...

A great amusement park for kids. So many rides covering all ages. The entrance is free and then you pay for each attraction, most are priced 1-4 Euro, which I found fair. The roller-coaster is pretty intense...

Pratersten can be easily reached on the U Bahn which is across the road from the station Praterstern. Entrance is free and you pay for the rides you go on, the better rides such as the Prater are 7 euro for an adult and the views are great over Vienna and right down to the Danube. There is a Madame... More

The park is only located about 2 minutes walk from Praterstern u-bahn. As you exit the station you will see it across the road junction. This is a great assessment park. It's free to enter and walk around which is great, which makes it great if some of you don't want to go on the rides and some do. There... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
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.
