  • At the Praterstern they don't get off definitely over, when they visit the Prater - otherwise rather unlikely - because I'm going out to inform drug addicts on TripAdvisor. Watch on your valuables!

  • Changed to the resort island on the Danube River was once a royal hunting ground seems to be since the Vienna Expo in 1873. This Park was famous world-wide, will climax scene of the movie that takes place in Vienna immediately after World War II "the third man". Amusement park feel a little bit tired, but still attracts many tourists. It was delicious sausages were sold at food stalls at the entrance.
