Waiter in Schweizer Haus

You are here:

Culinary Prater

More than five dozen restaurants can be found in the Prater: from a simple self-service stand where you can buy aromatic Hungarian “langos” to hot-dog stands where one asks for a “Hot One”, i.e. a hot sausage different from the also-ubiquitous hot dog to earthy restaurants, as well as restaurants for the more discerning taste.

The Schweizerhaus in the Prater with its extensive gardens is an iconic attraction. It is a popular place to stop off and enjoy the legendary “Stelzen” (knuckle of pork) or potato pancakes under the shade of the trees, accompanied by an original Budweiser beer. The Schweizerhaus is closed during the winter months. The annual opening in mid-March is always a grand spectacle.

Luftburg - Kolarik in the Prater has a lovingly landscaped garden with extensive an terrace and beer garden. The restaurant is known for its family-friendly atmosphere, including outdoor children’s play area, and for its food, which ranges from pork knuckle to spare ribs. Everything is 100% of organic quality. The Luftburg - Kolarik restaurant in Prater is the largest organic restaurant in the world and was awarded "Best Organic Restaurant" at the EU Organic Awards in September 2023.

The Rollercoaster Restaurant promises all sorts of fun and entertainment. The food is sent straight to your seat on spectacular rollercoasters. Robots mix cocktails and offer dance interludes to accompany a great light show.

Culinary Enjoyment Outdoors

The Die Allee restaurant is located where the green Prater begins, right in the middle of the Prater Hauptallee. Die Allee focuses on Viennese barbecued food, grilled dishes, steak and authentic Viennese cuisine. The meat destined for the BBQ is cooked in the smoker for up to 12 hours. The spare ribs come particularly highly recommended. A visit to the restaurant is best combined with a long walk through the spacious green surroundings of the Prater, or with a visit to the bowling lanes, which are also located on the Main Avenue. In summer, visitors can watch the goings-on along the Main Avenue of the Prater from the comfort of the lounge terrace.

The Meierei is the perfect place to settle down with a Viennese snack on the terrace and watch the lively hustle and bustle on the Main Avenue in the Prater.

The Lusthaus offers gourmet delights in an imperial setting. In keeping with this, the charming restaurant in the former imperial hunting pavilion serves traditional Viennese and Austrian cuisine, which is perfectly tailored to reflect the changing seasons.
