The Prater is a large public place in Austria's capital Vienna. It includes the Wurstelprater amusement park, which is home to the Wiener Riesenrad. The Vienna Ferris wheel, located at the entrance of the amusement park, is one of Vienna's most popular tourist attractions. It was opened to the public in 1897.

Entertainment Guaranteed

Although the amusement park constitutes only a tiny part of the Prater in Vienna, a world full of roller coasters, ghost trains, and attractions of all kinds awaits its visitors. Entertainment is guaranteed, as there are highlights for everyone, such as a Madame Tussauds, a 5D Cinema, numerous rides, neat restaurants, attractions and activities for children, a free fall tower, a hall of mirrors and others.

Historical Information

The institution dates back to the times of Austrian Empire, when in 1766 Emperor Joseph II. declared the area of the Prater open to public. Moreover, he allowed the establishment of cafés and bowling alleys, which led to the beginnings of today's Wurstelprater.

How to get there

By Car

From the south, the east and the west, visitors take the A23 in the direction of Prague (Prag/Brünn) and exit at Handelskai/Messezentrum. Visitors from the north take the Donauuferautobahn A22 to the exit Reichsbrücke.

By Public Transport

Visitors easily get to the Prater via metro lines U1 and U2 (exit at Praterstern station), via urban railway S1-S3, S7 or S15 (exit at Vienna North), via tramway O and 5 or by bus 80A.
