Old school amusement park

While not having the thrills of the modern parks it does hold the right atmosphere for the more romantic old school parks. We enjoy returning here during our visits to Vienna.

The beauty of Prater is that it is free to enter the park. You pay for rides as you go, with most between 3-5€. With everything from an arcade to rollercoasters to fun houses, this park has just about everything for a full day. The giant ferries wheel also gives you great views of the city! If you have an...

Very very very much entertaining. Don't hesitate a second, entrance is free but you have to pay for each game. Price is reasonable, games are various and many. The place is spacious, the giant ancient wheel is beautiful.

We visited this park because of the 3rd Man connection which is made much of. The ferris wheel gave us a an amazing view over the city and was a treat not to be missed. Most of the rides shut down over winter and were not open when we visited but it would make a great place to visit when... More

A bit over priced but generally good day out. 5 of us came here and enjoyed it, specially the children. Some rides are far too short and overpriced.

Little boy (6) loved this place. Some different rides to the usual fairground stuff. You can buy an all inclusive card, but didn't as some were age restricted. Probably good value if you are going to use it (paying for rides individually does add up). Would definitely recommend the Prater Turm - if you are brave enough!

Before travelling to Vienna we warched the restored version of the film noir The Third Man which we'd really recommend to you. While the film was shot in the post-war period it is iconic and the scene on the Prater is gripping.

Not a massive fan. Seems a little tacky like a travelling carnival, seems out of place for a beautiful city like vienna. But that's just my opinion. I'm sure if I went 20 years ago I would have loved it but I found it expensive and boring as of now

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood 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 centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, 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.
