Get ready for fun in the Prater

At regular intervals, entertaining events such as Family Sundays, Vacation Games or Prater Fairs take place at the Prater. And the Prater Adventure Tours offer guided tours on special topics – including a peek behind the scenes. This varied entertainment program is complemented by more than sixty cafés and restaurants, and ice cream and snack stands.

Go for a leisurely spin aboard the historic Giant Ferris Wheel, taking in the stunning views of the city from 64.75 meters above ground as Vienna's trademark Riesenrad revolves at a pedestrian 2.7 km/h.

Video with impressions of the amusement park in Vienna's Prater

Ever dreamed of introducing your children to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Angelina Jolie, Justin Bieber or Michael Jackson? A collection of 80 uncannily lifelike waxworks of famous people are waiting to make your acquaintance at Madame Tussauds on Riesenradplatz. Meet Empress Elisabeth aka Sisi at the new 5D attraction "Sisi Uncovered Experience".

Don't miss the beautiful meadows and play areas dotted around the six square kilometers that make up the Green Prater. Tip: hire your own bike rickshaw (near the rollercoaster) and explore the parts of the Prater park on and around the 4.5 kilometer Hauptallee - the park's tree-lined main thoroughfare.
