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

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.

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.
