Prater area is where many drug dealers and pick pockets hang out. The prater amusement park is very fun for kids, but careful of your belongings. It is best to not hang out too late at this area.

The park is quite big with a lot of games to play (3-4euro each). We visited the park s morning with very few people and we stayed until lunch. Not all games insure your kid's safety and in most activities the do not allow the parent help the kids unless they pay just to watch. The staff is at least... More

We spent a lovely day here. Enjoyed the big wheel and the little train. Watching kids enjoying the scary rides was a lot of fun.

The amusement park was very large with around 250 rides to go on. There were no queues so there was no time wasted waiting to get onto the rides. There were some very wild rides as well as milder ones for the faint-hearted. There was no entrance fee, one has to pay per ride.

This place is fine if you want to party and ride some carnival rides. If you're looking for a family-friendly amusement park, go well before dark!

Forgetting how good this place is for children it is wonderful for adults also. Especially if you are a big fan of the film The Third Man.

The park was very nice, but way too expensive. You can't buy a all inclusive pass that covers all rides. You pay by the ride. Each ride ranged from 5-15 Euro per rider. Just insane.

Having been the hunting grounds of the kings, the Prater remains vast and covered with trees. Ideal for a jog or cycling as there is no vehicular traffic on the inside roads. Interspersed with children's play areas and lakes. The children's park has a variety of rides, including horse riding.

This area is an amusement park with something for all ages. This would be a great change of pace from museums if traveling with children.

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.
