"Experience the Prater" Riesenrad & Prater Tip by call_me_rhia
Riesenrad & Prater, Vienna: 6 reviews and 14 photos
The Vienna Prater is permanent amusement park with more than 250 sorts of merry-go-rounds, roller coasters and other attractions. There’s something fro everyone, adults and children – if you like this sort of things. Otherwise it’s just a nice place to stroll about at night and people watch. Right behind the amusement park you can find the “Green Prater”: a beautifu park where one can relax and rest.
The symbol of the Prater, and of Vienna, too, is the Riesenrad (the giant ferry wheel), which dates back to 1896-97. It’s very slow and, apparently, very scenic – a turn takes about 30 minutes to complete; the best views of the city are during the day, but the wheel itself is more scenic at night, when it’s all lit up.
Dress Code: Casual/normal clothes. A camera is a must, especially during the day, on the panoramic wheel
