We visited the Praterstern amusement park in the winter and had a fun experience. Although a lot of the park was closed, we rode the Riesenrad Ferris wheel and then at double long sausages at one of the many outdoor food vendors in the park. The park is located by the Mitte Bahnhof so it is easy to access. It... More

You really shouldn't miss this attraction! The entrance in the park is free (you can only watch if don't want to ride anything) and the parking fee is very good (2 euros / hour). The souvenir shop is very big and prices are very good.

We were in Vienna for New Years eve and decided to head here based on information given to us by our hotel reception. There was a lively atmosphere with live music and people starting to dance around 21:00. The mood was helped with the many food and drink stalls around the main square serving a variety of mulled wines, bratwurst... More

After days of visiting castles , palaces and museums it was kid's time. We went on a ride on the famous wheel which gives an amazing view of the surrounding area and afterwards we had fan at the madame tussauds museum. Both activities really worth their money and your children will love it.

This big wheel is the best place to see the whole Vienna. It is slow and gives a good sightseeing place. You can assesses it true sub way easily.

Visiting towards the end of November, very few of the attractions were open and the area was quite deserted. It all felt a little ghostly! That being said, i could imagine the place in the open season being a real good day/afternoon out. It is a nice change from the city and is easy to reach. The rides appeared to... More

If your visiting Vienna, then this should be one of the top locations on your list. Great amusement parks with many rides to choose, for all ages. And if your not into crazy rides, you can take one of the oldest farms wheels, it has great scenery for any who love sightseeing as you can see almost the whole city... More
