The Prater & Giant Ferris Wheel

Vienna Prater is a large public park, a place of nostalgic dreams for some and an oasis of greenery for almost everyone — it is the home of the popular amusement park and the location of the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of Vienna’s most famous symbols. The Prater is open from March to October, but the Giant Ferris Wheel and a few other attractions are open year-round.

Do & See

Vienna has over 100 museums and countless examples of great architecture seamlessly combining old and new designs. When you've got enough sightseeing for the day, rest in one of the 280 parks and gardens scattered around the city.
