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 park with many attractions...there are many roller coasters, so I recommend to first walk through park and then decide which one should be your next ride..there are many horror houses as well..first get an impression which one is more scary..the one where I went was not scary at all but then I found more somewhere at the centre of the park. Finally most of the rides open after 1 pm so it's better to visit after 1 though park opens around 10am
  • 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!
