"Prater" Prater Park Tip by alancollins

Prater Park, Vienna: 43 reviews and 76 photos


I was surprised by the huge size of the Prater at 60 square kilometres. It was originally a royal hunting ground but the public have been allowed access since 1766. It is opened every day of the year and is the place to come to if you like sporting actives. Its great for relaxing walks, hikes, jogging, skating, swimming, cycling, there is a BMX track, horse racing, golf and boating. Other attractions include the Giant Ferris Wheel ‘Riesenrad’, amusement park and miniature railway ‘liliputbahn’.
