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.

  • The park is great fun - and free to enter - and would always recommend it on a trip to Vienna as have been several times. Latest visit marred by grumpy unhelpful man in big wheel kiosk who stood...

  • The gigantic park is practically in the center of the city, where everyone can find something for themselves: a large number of paid parking lots, beautiful trees, a steam train, restaurants, cafes...

  • Lots of thrilling rides to go on. There are things to do for most ages, but I'd suggest you go there as a teenager or older since most of the rides are targeting young adults. Some of them can be a little fast and scary for some people so keep that in mind!
  • It's the best outdoor place in the city. Its not far away, has a good access point and enough parking surface. The families can rent bikes, rickshaws. Great entertainment for big and small. In addition one can dine almost everywhere. The greatest park with woods and walking paths.. it's stunning!! Highly recommended!
