"Prater - NOT!" Vienna Tourist Trap Tip by wildstrawberries

Vienna Tourist Traps: 118 reviews and 86 photos


Overrated, overpriced - Definitely not worth the 7.50 EURO for that slow ride and not-so-great view!

Unique Suggestions: If taking the Prater wheel ride makes your day, then go ahead. But please don't fall for the photograph trap before you board the Prater - 10EURO for a silly posed shot?!

And honestly, the 2nd-class amusement park which housed the Prater is a real let-down

Fun Alternatives: Watch the Prater from a vantage point, and save your money for the museums - which are very expensive too.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
