It is full of life and children and people having a great time. Lots actually I have never seen so many attractions in one amusement park...so many choices! Great place to take photos and most important there are a lot of restaurants to have a great time in.

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

One of the must do's in Vienna is to go for a ride on the Ferris wheel in Pratler , takes 15 mins for the wheel to go round , great views over Vienna , quite haunting with the music from the third man in the background , a must visit again trip

I am not a fan of amusement parks or fairgrounds but a ride on the giant Ferris wheel at the Prater is a must. the views are truly amazing and it has a lot of history too.A well known landmark of Vienna, built at the end of the 19th century by an English engineer it has withstood two world wars...

I usually visit this place with my students after an annual international event held in March - April. We like it very much. There are so many things to do. I enjoy the most dangerous merry-go-round where you experience free falls, roundabouts and so on. Prices are reasonable, though to have a 1,5 minute video of your crazy flying in... More

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
