Best known for the Wurstelprater amusement park, Prater is a public park whose history dates back to 1162. The land passed through the hands of noble families for several centuries, until Emperor Joseph II opened the park to the public in 1766. Visit the Krieau, a horseracing track, and see Austria's largest stadium, Ernst Happel Stadium. The main pathway, known as Hauptallee, is closed to vehicles and lined by horse chestnut trees. Take a ride on the park's Ferris wheel or try out bumper cars, carousels, roller coasters, and ghost trains. The amusement park even features a Madame Tussauds wax works cabinet. Put Prater and other Vienna attractions into our Vienna day trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

It was a really cool experience. When we turned up, around 12pm, there was almost no one is the park, it was surreal. Eventually everything opened up and we had a great afternoon. It was definitely worth the short journey out to the park.
