Best known for the Wurstelprater amusement park, Prater is a public park whose history dates back to 1162. The land passed through the hands of noble families for several centuries, until Emperor Joseph II opened the park to the public in 1766. Visit the Krieau, a horseracing track, and see Austria's largest stadium, Ernst Happel Stadium. The main pathway, known as Hauptallee, is closed to vehicles and lined by horse chestnut trees. Take a ride on the park's Ferris wheel or try out bumper cars, carousels, roller coasters, and ghost trains. The amusement park even features a Madame Tussauds wax works cabinet. Put Prater and other Vienna attractions into our Vienna day trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Great amusement park with a large variety of rides and activities. Not too crowded, waiting queues are small or rather nonexistent. Good option for a date, family day, or some old fashioned adrenaline rush. Ferris wheel is particularly charming during the sunset. It can get a bit windy and cold at the top depending on the season.
  • Very great experience for both, children but also teenagers. We have spent great time there with my girlfriend and will be surely coming back in next months. Parking was good, prices are very affordable and the entry is free. You pay for the attractions. Recommend
