My partner was born and raised in Vienna, and it was my first time visiting in May... she insisted we go to Prater... and I didn't expect much from it... but boy was I wrong! I reckon we went back around 10 times in the time we were visiting Vienna!! It's SO fun, for everyone... and that's the beauty of... More

Well we found the Wheel and thoroughly pleased I was especially as we visited on a beautifully sunny day. It's not cheap but you couldn't resist it. I also bought a souvenir photo which is fun if you enter into the spirit of what's required - 3 for 19 euros (but 1 is a download.) Lots of great views to... More

We went there on our first day in Vienna after walking around the city and found it by accident! First of all it's a lovely park to walk around and enjoy the sunshine, they have a number of places to eat and drink as well. The best part for us was the rides there, Iike big kids we were on... More

No visit to Vienna is complete without a trip on the wheel. My only regret is that we did not do it at night as well.

For some reason I didn't have huge expectations...why I don't know. But it was literally so much more than I expected! So many different rides and things to do. My favourites were the rubber dingy water ride and the fun house. It was relatively expensive but I understand that it's there everyday of the year so it needs to be... More

We loved the views from the wheel, however there was a lot of older pushier Italian citizens on board, which did detract from what would have been a lovely relaxing experience. In hindsight we could have gone earlier or later to avoid the crowds. Again thankful we had out Vienna pass.

This was a short subway ride from our hotel. We went to ride on the Wiener Riesenrad - the 100 yo + ferris wheel. I think it cost 10 euros. I had a very nice time. The view was incredible. It was a Wednesday and late in the season - no crowds at all. Also enjoyed the Marilyn Monroe statue... More

For us it was a must do - no visit to Vienna without visiting Prater, Schloss Schoenbrunn or Fiaker tour! The Prater is easy to reach by public transport. We actually had the 'Vienna Pass', so we did go by Hop on Hop off Bus enjoying free entry! The Prater is within a kind of park with different other activities... 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.
