Lots and lots of attractions for every age and different adrenalin level. Visited in december - some of the attractions were closed so I think that spring-summer is even more fun.

My wife and I walked here the week after Christmas to see the market. We did not do any of the rides or attractions and found the Christmas market to be disappointing. There are much better Christmas markets in town.

I was there at Sunday as not many places are open at Sunday in Wien. Even they said Prater is open 24h but at 11am not many attractions were open. It is nice place to bring kids and to have fun. I bet it will be much better if was not cold that much. Worth a visit.

Since I am a great fan of the Ferris wheel, this was not to be missed in Vienna. Wow! This Ferris wheel is huge! Families came in our "cabin" bringing along skateboards, etc. Since the wheel turns so slowly, you have ample time to look at many different views of the city. In actuality, you go all the way around... More

No visit to Vienna would be complete without a ride on the big wheel in the Prater. Even in Winter my 8 year old daughter and I found much to entertain us at the Prater - from the usual fairground rides and miniature train to horse riding and even a restaurant where your dinner is delivered to your table via...

Visited Prater for the second time with 3 children.The atmosphere was lovely and the museum was educational. Rides were exceptional fun for all. Very family friendly . Well worth the visit. The walk through the park adjacent to the rides is simply lovely. A must visit in Vienna if traveling with children .

To me the best part of the prater is its lovely old wooden Ferris wheel. The wheel has large wooden carriages which travel very slowly and provide great views of Vienna as they complete a circle. If you have time a ride on the Ferris wheel is a nice step back in time and a must do in Vienna.

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.
