Best known for the Wurstelprater amusement park, Prater is a public park whose history dates back to 1162. The land passed through the hands of noble families for several centuries, until Emperor Joseph II opened the park to the public in 1766. Visit the Krieau, a horseracing track, and see Austria's largest stadium, Ernst Happel Stadium. The main pathway, known as Hauptallee, is closed to vehicles and lined by horse chestnut trees. Take a ride on the park's Ferris wheel or try out bumper cars, carousels, roller coasters, and ghost trains. The amusement park even features a Madame Tussauds wax works cabinet.

  • We visited this park area just as Octobre fest started so it was busy and lots to do. The old big wheel, which is famous and a popular attraction on its own is a pleasant thing to do for views over th...  read more »
  • A great place for fun. I participated in four attractions, don't exactly know their names but that was fun. Of course safe too. Austrian companies have very high standards of safety and so, go for it
  • This place is pretty cool. Went here on a whim and wasn't disappointed. Extremely green all around so it's excellent for a walk as you stay in the shade. The amusement park itself isn't half bad either. Great way to spend an afternoon.
  • I thought i am not into that kind of fun on my way here. I ended up with going to every single roller coaster available. Place its worth seeing at night!
  • Absolutely brilliant area in Vienna. First of all, this park/forest/amusement park area is big. It has a train that with a few stops that goes around the park and it's a nice experience to ride it. Secondly, the amusement park: It's a awesome experience to go walking down the street on Vienna and suddenly find the entrance to a brilliant amusement park for free!! The rides are not free, but you can walk around the amusement park for free. It's not a crappy/old amusement park. Indeed has been here for a lot of years but it feels more than a decent one! At night, the park with the lights is just beautiful. Here you can spend 4 hours easily. Too much fun.
  • Simply fantastic. The Park is big and attractions are Just amazing. Please try the highest attraction, it's worth the price. Prices of attraction vary from 4 to 10 euros (go karts reach 22 euros) but food is cheaper than Wien Center
