Prater, Vienna

3.9
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. Put Prater and other Vienna attractions into our Vienna day trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Non-stopping Koreans because of those four sunrise would just sorta look!! There's a Ferris wheel at the entrance of the two old-fashioned Ferris wheel go right (slow Dome). I'm trying to get this if you go for the best ride I went to Lotte World best gyro swing in similar rides (5 Euro/1). This would make k-dog honey jam. 360 degree gyro swing version, just a 5-minute ride zooms in de Haan believes me not regret never get this!!!!!!

  • It can be easily reached by underground, once the Royal hunting reserve, today's modern amusement park with over 250 attractions both for large adults. The attraction definitely better known and frequented is certainly the Riesenrad Ferris wheel, known as reaching 54 meters high from the opportunity to have a wonderful view of the city at a price of 10 euros, including in Vienna pass. Nice even Madame Tussauds which is also included with the Vienna pass, as well as around the Park by train. Particularly chilling and the carousel of the chains that door at a height of 117 meters. There are many eateries and restaurants.

  • Free entry. Had a fun time with the roller coasters and swings. Many attractions to play and its not that expensive per ride. Haunted houses, maze, horse riding and bumper cars. Was not crowded when I went at 4pm+ on a weekday. Lovely park to walk around.
  • Great amusement park. free entry. rides are reasonably priced ranged between 3-6 euros. I will give 5 stars considering the quality of rides, no entry fee and reasonable charges for rides and food inside the park.
  • Absolutely loved this place. There is something for all that this place can offer. For some it could be love at first sight. Full of energy and activity. So many rides to go around. Very nice restaurants and Bier gartens to have a lovely time with friends and family. The Giant wheel is just one hell of an experience! Worth a try for anyone who is in Vienna!
  • It's a nice park to go for a walk, meet some friends, or to lay down on a camping blanket and just chill. The green is everywhere in the middle of the city. Just be aware it's not so safe at night.
  • Park in Vienna which have amusement park inside. It's full of roller coasters and other attractions. Place is usually heavily crowded but at the end it's quite interesting with its unique atmosphere. You can easily spend here half of the day. There is also plenty of places where it's possible to grab some Austrian food and beer.
