Had great fun for a few hours. Close to the center yet huge space. Took the children for a ride with the train around the park (through the trees and bushes). Walked around a bit and saw many rides (roller coaster etc) but could not try due to young age of children (under 6). Tried the bumper cars, which i... More

The Prater's ferris wheel has been in Vienna for ever! But that is only one of the attractions. There is a section with older rides and a large area with modern rides and experiences. I must admit that you really feel that all they want is your money. Our group went on a ride where you often ended up getting... More

I first went on the Giant Ferris Wheel at the Prater in 1968. I saw the 1949 film The Third Man for the first time some years later, though the title and the zither music were in my head because of the early 1969s TV series. I think everyone who comes to Vienna should have a turn in the Riesenrad... More

Large amusement park with approximately 250 attractions including rides, restaurants and bars. Particularly colourful at night with thousands of lights. A day out there could set you back a few Euro's (although free to get in), but if visiting Vienna with children this will make a change from all the cultural stuff. There is also a miniature railway that runs... More

I was staying close to the "Prater . I was there two nights running. One night I visited the large beer garden and had, I think an authentic Vienna experience, the people were singing and having a great time.The following day, I took the world famous Ferris Wheel, it was 9 Euro, which I thought was fair. I visited another... More

Great place to spend a day or two or three.... quite big and exciting. You can take your kids or you can offer it to yourself! Either way you won't regret it. I don't remember the cost as I was much younger when I visited but memories of so much fun are still alive !

We spended about two hours in Praterstern with my wife in the First of May. The weather was sunny and warm, felt like summer. Due to the national holiday the place was packed with people. All kinds of carousels, Riesenrad, merry-go-rounds, rollercoasters, giant swings... all kinds of amusement park gadgets. Country-band was playing on stage and people were dancing and... More

Coming from Orlando, the theme park capital, Prater was not exactly spectacular, but I enjoyed myself and it is a good way to use a few hours. The only thing I disliked was a charge to use the toilet, but I guess since it was free to get into the park, I cannot complain much.
