Fun, but can get expensive.

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... read more

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

What a great place to spend the day with friends and family. there were so many rides to choose from and many that were suitable for all ages. Many different places to eat with a variety of types of food. You can ride the chuchu train around to get to various stops. It is like stepping back in time to... More

Usually when i travel with my kids they don't like site seeing like adults so i must find some activities for them. we all enjoyed the Park had lot's of fun and laughing. I hope they make one ticked to be paid at the entrance instead of paying on each game

A nice oldschool amusement park with the famous ferris wheel. If you have more that 3 days in Vienna or need a brake from museum visits Praterstern can be a nice choice.

Prater - this is an absolute must for everyone visiting Vienna :) Free entry in the park, and you pay for the attractions. :)

Before visiting Prater, we had done our homework. Some people seemed disappointed in the lack of massive coasters and more modern rides, which the young people in particular, seem to crave. Not being fans of fear or nausea, we avoid most of those things, so Prater seemed like it would be a good choice for us. We were hoping for... More

Lots of games, rides, and food! Amusement park is free to walk around, only pay to ride the rides. Even if by yourself it's interesting to see the unique rides.

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.
