Madame Tussauds Vienna

Madame Tussauds

The world-famous waxworks museum Madame Tussauds is a highlight in the Vienna Prater.

71 wax figures can be seen at Madame Tussauds on Riesenradplatz in Vienna's Prater. Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Sisi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Falco, Maria Theresia and Gustav Klimt are just some of the local personalities and historic people to be seen on 2,000 m² of exhibition space (spread over three floors). In specially created interactive settings, you can also take an intelligence test against Albert Einstein, conduct the "Blue Danube" waltz with Johann Strauß or try to beat football legend Hans Krankl in a penalty shoot-out.

International celebrities are also heavily represented: Johnny Depp, Nicole Kidman, Robert Pattinson, Angelina Jolie and Michael Jackson "represent" the show business industry. Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela represent world politics.

The wax figures of Madame Tussauds have fascinated people for more than 150 years. It takes three to six months to produce a figure. More than 500 precise body measurements and about 200 photographs are needed to capture even the smallest feature of a person in the most realistic detail possible. A total of 800 hours of work go into producing each of the wax figures costing around €200,000.
