take a walk on the mor than 4 km long Hauptallee, starting at the Pratersten, going down to the Kaiserallee, where the World-Fair was held. Then walk along to the Stadion and finally recieve the Lusthaus.
Praterstern is square in northern residential part of Vienna. I don't really like this area but there is big entertainment park Prater just around the corner. It can be fun to try some of the devices, like rollercoaters etc. Recomended!
The park where the Riesenrad is situated, has all sorts of funfair rides, from gentle children merry-go-rounds to stomach-twisting big dippers!
Rides cost from Euro 1.10 to 4...
As you wander around the park, you will see some weird & twisted metal human sculptures.....as captured by my camera on the left.
Prater Park, what else can you say about this place? You can almost smell the boiled cabbage on the carnie's breath. It's an amusing place, no matter how sad it is. It's just something you should either go and laugh at, or not go at all. But, if you've got kids, believe me, they'll love it! There are a ton of fun games, rides, and entertainers. I do suggest that you go on the weekend because I went on a weekday and there wasn't anyone there, it wasn't too much fun. Going at night may also be memorable, you decide. Prater park is a ways from town, so take the metro.
PRATER used to be one of the greatest amusement parks in Europe. Although it seems that its best times are gone it's still lots of fun. Be smart enough going there and know your limits... I got so crazy there that I didn’t know when to stop. And not sure if I was lucky but my friends and I got one more ride for free. Well, it seemed to last forever and I was calling any human being to save my life... I survived!!!
Prater Riesenrad, or Giant Ferris Wheel, allowing to see the city of Vienna all at once.
Visit it in sunset hours, and you will have a chance to watch the sunset over Vienna, with its low red-roofed buildings and spires of churches forming a romantic skyline with the vineyard hills in the background.
Spend some time in the Prater, which was probably Europe's first amusement park (fun fair). It's big and there are rides enough for everyone from the ultra-sedate 'Riesenrad,' which makes a single revolution in ten minutes, to things I wouldn't have gotten on in the wildest days of my youth.
This place is a lovely amusement park!
I lay on the green lawn and could relax my body, my feet and myself under a tree at that travel-time!!
I liked that atmosphere-a little noisy but not too much-, beautiful Sunset and cheerful children with thier families.
this permanent funfair in the second district is a great place to head on summer nights, there are masses of rides and great pubs. Great for walking in the summer and games of football too!
The ‘main artery’ of the Green Prater is the 4.5-kilometer-long Hauptalle, a straight and wide avenue between Praterstern and the Lusthaus, a former hunting pavilion turned into a restaurant.
