We went to ride on the ferris wheel, it was very good to see the lights of Vienna at night and have some fun around the fair. There are lots of rides to try and places to eat some of them theamed like horror or roller coaster.

In all my trips to Vienna I never visited the Prater and took a ride on the Ferris wheel.. It was a wonderful experience. My memories of the movie "The Third Man" came flooding back. I have an inordinate fear of heights but this was such a gentle experience. The cars were very comfortable and the view from the top... More

Went on the wheel sunday 23rd October late afternoon. Views across Vienna were stunning. Waited approx 5mins to get on and shared a coach with around 6 others.

We visited the park after a day of culture visits. Our children really enjoyed it. The entrance of the park is free and you only pay the house the attractions you want to use. It can become expensive if you don't control the children. Really great attractions. The children loved a couple of them

After The Third Man we had to do this but were disappointed. Had to go out to the park which we found tired and grubby and as it was quiet one turn passed very quickly as no wait for carriages to fill. Also exhibition at start needs updating. Not worth the effort of going.

Words cannot describe how beautiful and exciting this park trully is! Once you get in Vienna this should be the first place to visit! Be sure to reserve a full day for it and preferably go while it's summer!

I had read about the giant ferris wheel, so when we had time and it was nearing sunset we found ourselves heading easily on the metro to the Prater - there is a direct line. We easily purchased tickets and had only a few minutes wait to load onto the cabin-like cars that take you around where you can see... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
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.
