We went on a beer festival day and hundreds of Austrians were in full traditional gear. We used our Vienna Pass to ride the Ferris wheel. I have to say that the location is not the best so unlike similar attractions in Singapore or London you don't fabulous views. But enjoyable nevertheless.

There are so many and so different attractions that everybody can find something enjoyable. We tried the giant ferris wheel (great views), and two roller coasters. Although they seemed small, we felt maximum adrenaliune, especially during the Boomerang ride. We enjoyed also the Boomerang - there is a camera there which makes snapshots at the cost of EUR 4,5. It... More

Prater is an amusement park for all ages. Great to just walk around and people watch or get involved and go on the rides. There are a few built in restaurants as well. No charge to get in you just pay for the rides you want to go on. Very easy to access by public transportation.

When I was a kid we used to go here and spend the whole day here having fun. Now as an adult we still go here, even though we don't have kids. We buy some take away food and walk around the amusement park in the evening enjoying the beautiful lights and laughter around the park. Entrance is free.

The prater itself is quite busy, but activities surounding it are a a good way to waste time while waiting for your turn. Once you are in the cabin, the view is very good, but for me, the ride was a little to long.

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

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.
