We visited the Ferris Wheel as a nod to the Third Man. We had some time to fill in so made the trip. Views over Vienna are good and the cabins are a nostalgic hint of Vienna' near past. Not badly priced either.

Old and young should come here. Many different rides, including roller coasters, Ferris wheel, ghost train and the Prater Turm, to name a few. They are all a must try! Stop on your way for an ice cream or a traditional type of sausage in...More

Fun in the middle of the day is something every big city should have, not just for x-mas holidays. In the corners you could see what people ate before they went on rollercoasters haha. Only thing shocked us was the ponies and horses totally skinny...More

The Prater fair is a large permanent fair that is situated in a large park in the middle of Vienna. It's old, but not outdated. We visited it expecting some run-down fair that was nice last century, but it was still nice. Prices are decent...More

Nice to be able to walk around all the rides and not feel like you have to go on everything like you do at other parks. As a pay per ride it adds up fast though. If you think you will go on multiple rides...More

A nice break from high Viennese culture...especially for the kids. No lines for us on a weekday and the ferris wheel is a blast.

The Prayer is a bit of the beaten track so plan your journey. Nice green park, theme park and the famous Riesenrad wheel. Cash only for the wheel, take your camera to capture the views.

If you travel with little kids to vienna, it's a must attraction. Free entrence. You pay only for each activity. Nice places to eat and drink around.

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

It is around 65 metres high which was gigantic in its time but rather dwarfed by today's ferris wheels. Being over 100 years old it has its own particular charm and history and is well worth the ride
