We really enjoyed the Ferris wheel, where the main topic of conversation among German, British and Italian couples on the gondola, was "why spend €400 on a romantic dinner, only to be overlooked by gangs of 20 other Europeans laughing at you?" The poor couple knew they'd been rumbled, however contributed to a little entente cordiale, although without our French... More

Compared to today's amusement parks today in the US, Hong Hong or Tokyo, this one has a lot of personality with its old attractions. But they are very old. Many are closed or empty. We didn't feel like going up the bog wheel, but we had a quick (bad) pizza in one of the fast food eateries at the entrance.... More

There are a lot of different playground in the Prater. The entrance is free but at the different playstations you have to pay mostly 2-5 EUR. The Madame Tussaud is lcated at the entrance, you have to buy a ticket. There are many restaurant in the Prater and they are really good ones, you can try the local food&drink. Next... More

Good place to spend a few hours and have fun, but prepare you wallet! The rides are not cheap and are not very long either. It was fun anyway.

Entrance to the park is free and the rides are very reasonably priced. We rode most of the roller coasters and they were amazingly fun. At night the place comes alive with lights and has a great atmosphere. This is a must do for people who want a night of exhilarating fun.

The madame tussauds was great!!! Worth the money. Been also on the wheel, also fun. It's a shame you need to pay for each ride separately, because there are some rides who costs too much. There's also the feeling that anyone can open a ride and asks for money as much as he wants

A place you definitely have to visit above all of you have children. Many different attractions for children and adults from very easy ones to freaky ones;) some of the rides of very good but unfortunately quite expensive (common in such places) You can also visit Madame toussaud and enjoy the ride in the fairies wheel. Lots of fun guaranty!

I visited this place in August at about 7am. That time I started to love it! No people, no lights, no sounds - but at the same time I could imagine how it looked like night before. It was like being in a town of ghosts! It's amazing in the evenings but the mornings... breathtaking! That atmosphere I'll never forget.... More

Its a must do in Vienna - visit the Prater and ride the famous Ferris wheel. Unfortunately for us it was winter and most places were closed but it was still a romantic adventure and the walk about the grounds without crowds at dusk was special. If crowds are a bother then this is just the go. To get there... 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.
