We stayed next door & visited on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Very different aspects. It's sort of rickety but that's part of the charm. Old, wooden rides alongside a few more modern ones. It was fairly quiet and some rides were empty - not a single queue for anything. Not too expensive for tickets either and one of the... More

Actually i believe it's a perfect place in afternoon as most attractions in Vienna close by 5:00 pm, so you can go to prater after that.. It's a paradise for kids ... So many plays, rides,... You can spend at least 2 hours in this place....

Wonderful and enormous collection of carnival rides of a type that has become scarce in America where soulless theme parks have replaced the old carnival culture. We especially loved the impressive collection of ghost trains / dark rides, including one built in the 40s that must surely be one of the oldest of its kind in the world. There are... More

So much fun and adrenaline, a lot of crazy machines. Nice location, easy to get there with subway, it is near the station. A lot of bars and good restaurants (schweize haus), Madam Tussauds inside! Have fun :)

We've been there to suprise my father and mother (in Austria for the weekend) and took them to the giant Wheel. Beautifull view from the 66m meters of the giant wheel and so many colors. Great experience. Otherwise the Prater parc entrance is free, you just have to pay fee for each attractions you want to enter. (horror house..shooting cans,... More

Great fun, the prices are medium-high, but totally worth it. There is a brewery there that will serve the most amazing wurst, beer and pork chop! Great way to spend a day there! :D

Looking for entertainment and a place to hang-out on the afternoon? Visit Vienna's famous Prater. Visit Madame Tussaud, get on the ferries wheel and enjoy delicious waffels.

When everything else has closed in Vienna, Prater Park stays open late into the night. U-Bahn Praterstern drops you right outside the main entrance. It is free to enter but rides are individually priced and range from €1-€5. This is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world. Highlight is the Giant Ferris Wheel, built in 1897 which is...

Plenty of attractions for all ages. Sugar cotton and snacks, those are tad expensive, but the attractions are from 3€ to 8€. All are safe and well attended. Our three hours there were too few.

This was my second visit to the planetarium and I was satisfied. I can't say it was amazing, but I can say it was pretty good. We visited the narrated event, where a guide showed us the sky as can be seen from the Vienna (omitting the lights). The dome is quite big and reproduction of starts on its walls... More
