This is a very large and open amusement park that is a great place to let your kids have some fun after you have tortured them all day by visiting museums and palaces. Besides the Riesenrad there are countless rides and funhouses. Some of the rides are more extreme than you see in the US. There are plenty of places... More

There is an underground tube station to Prater. It's an amusement park with fun rides and places to eat and drink. There's the famous big wheel constructed in 1897 which was really what we were there for as that's the symbol of Vienna. It's €10 each to go on the ride and there's stunning views to be seen! It's free... More

If you like fairgrounds, this is worth visiting. There are many eating places and the Prater giant ferris wheel is just one of many rides which you can visit. Madame Tussauds was informative because it features many Austrian celebrities and composers.

This amusement park was first opened in about 1790 (yes, really) and claims to be the oldest in the world. It's well worth a visit and for the summer months opens at 8.00 a m and closes at midnight. There's a vast range of dodgems, children's rides, a miniature railway and lots of stomach churners only for the young and/or... More

We wandered through the amusement park very easily.Lots of great rides to go on. We went on the train carriage type ferris wheel. It offered a great view over the park and the city. It cost€10 which was expensive for only one circuit. Best off buying one of the many combination deals offered. Had a few souvenir shops and a... More

The Prater is the large amusement park. The main feature is the Wiener Riesenrad, the old Ferris wheel that has been a part of the city skyline for years. The wheel had a starring role in the classic film ‘The Third Man’. Unfortunately it now sits surrounded by the other rides in the fun park and is frankly a little... More

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.
