This is the iconic ferris wheel made up of old railway carriages. It is part of a fairground with lots of different rides and eating stalls; a very lively place. I thought there was no queue, but discovered it happens AFTER you buy your ticket...More

Family of four took the private 30 min cocktail cabin...finger sandwiches and drinks were of good quality. The private family time to chill and the views were priceless.

Maybe not the top attraction of Vienna, but then one of the best known. Built in 1897 and still operational. It makes me think of the film “The Third Man” (Orson Welles) and the Riesenrad scene. The entrance to the Prater amusement park is for...More

We went there following a guide saying this attraction is a must see in Vienna. First of all, they only let you pay in cash. How is it possible that a tourist attraction doesn't have a debit/credit card reader? And am I supposed to carry...More

We ordered tickets online the night before to jump the queue after traveling in from Bratislava. Just scanned the e-ticket from the phone and straight in. Very nice leisurely ride which last between 15-20 minutes and gives a great view across the city.

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
