What a dump. We didn’t think it was worth the effort visiting. Hardly any rides were open. People were wandering around looking for things to do. Rides that were open were expensive. Terrible customer service at the Riesenrad. I wouldn’t go back.

I would recommend it both in cold and hot weather. During winter - there is the Weihnachtsmarkt but unfortunately there are not a lot of opened attractions. You should try the Giant Ferris Wheel!!

Lots of things to see especially the Viennesse giant ferris wheel, where you get to see the City beneath you. Free entrance but one has to pay for every attraction, which may turn out to be quite expensive to go on every ride. Nice place...More

Better buy combo ticket at the Schönbrunn zoo, is cheaper there, you pay separtely the ticket for young children at Prater. Expensive photos at Prater small museum.

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

Dear Bernice, Prater is a huge entertainment area. There is the "Grüner Prater" with free playgrounds and the "Wurstelprater" with rides for kids, familys and adrenalin junkies. Enjoy your visit, everything is safe and clean.

Free entry to the Prater. You just pay by ride. No idea about the parking as we visited using the hop on, hop off sightseeing bus but there is a station nearby .
