If you are into rollercoasters etc this is a fab place! Even if your not you have nothing to lose by walking round as entrance is free, you just pay for what you want to do! I had wanted to do the Ferris wheel the...More

The entrance to the park is tatty. The wheel is ok but no London eye experience. The rest is a fun fare of low tech rides. One to avoid.

Visited a few days before Christmas on a grey and dreary day so this naturally affected our experience. Not everything was open and it was bitterly cold to wander around or go on the amusements. Despite its iconic status, I found the Ferris wheel very...More

This is pretty much our favorite place in Vienna. My kids (ages 12 and 14) and I come here about once a month. I live that you can go into the park for free. You can choose to buy a pass or just pay for...More

Had so much fun in this place was great more like a amusement/fun park. We didn't realise it was so big so didn't have enough time to discover everything. If I return to Vienna would plan a whole day here

We went to this park with three kids. We didn't elect to buy the pay one price tickets are €45 per person. We probably should have gotten it for the kids since each ride is about €4 to 5 per ride. So plan ahead.

The Prater gives one a great overview of Vienna. A nice experience, but not a "must". Would recommend going there if you are in the nearby area.

So many rides!! The food and rides can be slightly expensive so it's not a free day out but there is something for all the family.

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

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
