"Spend a fun-filled day at The..." Wiener Riesenrad - Giant Ferris Wheel Tip by Krystynn


Spend a fun-filled day at <u><b>The Prater</b></u> and feel like a little kid again.

If you think this is just another amusement park, you're wrong, my friend. It's definitely more than that: It's an institution! And the most note-worthy attraction here must surely be the 65 meter high Giant Ferris Wheel. Oh, but the fun just doesn't end here. Check out the extra-long slides.... and laugh yourselves silly whilst you see a reflection of yourself - bent, fat or thin in the <i>Hall of Mirrors</i>. Or how about savoring the romantic nostalgia of an old merry-go-round.... or...or.... spend a few moments at the Planetarium? They are all not-to-be-missed.

Address: Riesenradplatz 1, 1020 Wien
Directions: Between Antifaschismusplatz &amp; Oswald-Thomas-Platz
othercontact: Take the 'O' tram-line at Südbah
