Mädchen isst Zuckerwatte

Fun whatever the weather

During the summer children and adults flock to Vienna’s Prater, a high-octane amusement park with more than 250 attractions. The Black Mamba takes riders to a different plane, while the Ghost Train is just the ticket for thrill seekers. 75 celebrity waxworks await visitors at Madame Tussauds, including Austrian soccer star David Alaba. The Giant Ferris Wheel turns at a leisurely 2.7 km/h. Just behind it, the fields of the “Green Prater” are ideal for blowing off steam.

Snow and a little bit of cold air are the perfect conditions for Vienna’s Christmas markets, including one in front of the Belvedere palace. Young visitor’s faces just light up at the sight of all the confectionery and handcrafted wares. At the end of January Rathausplatz is transformed into an 8,000-square-meter ice rink – including the dreamy winter trail – for Vienna Ice World.

And if it rains, a few hours at the House of the Sea is a great option. Time Travel Vienna takes visitors on a high-tech journey back in time through 2,000 years of Viennese history. And at Therme Wien – Europe’s largest city spa – it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside.
