    Fantastic! It was on my wish list to visit in Vienna and I was close but I decide to devote more time to this place. So it is still on my things-to-do list.

      I did prefer the Prater a bit messy as it was many years ago (maybe i´m just getting a cranky old man...), today its all stylish and clean
