With ivie through the Prater: Messe Wien Grätzel Walk
What about a neighborhood walk around the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center? Because there's so much variety here in and around the Prater. It's where pleasurable meets historic and ultra-modern.
Come along on a walk full of contrasts that starts at Messe Wien and leads you to the campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business and to Viertel Zwei – one of Vienna's most impressive urban development projects. The site of the 1873 Vienna World's Fair was located precisely here. The Krieau harness racing track, the Prater, and, of course, the Wurstelprater with all its amusements also lie along the way. And the Messe Wien neighborhood walk also leads to the Stuwerviertel, where a typical Viennese Gründerzeit neighborhood awaits that nowadays offers great dining experiences. You will need about two hours for this walk.
