What to see at the Prater

In addition to the amusement park and the legendary Ferris Wheel (the absolute protagonists), the Vienna Prater has many options for all visitors

It is, first of all, an immense green lung. Woods, meadows and waterways offer a relaxing and peaceful environment, ideal for long walks, bike or skate rides, and running. And a main avenue over 4 km long!


Just a few minutes walk from the Ferris wheel, Madame Tussauds is one of the top must-sees on what to see in the Prater. Smartphone in hand, you can take photos and take splendid selfies with stars and celebrities. More info from this link.

If you are on holiday with your children, among the unmissable events on what to see in the Prater is, at the top of the list, the Zeiss Planetarium.
Under the most beautiful starry sky in the city you can admire stars, planets, comets… A real stellar theater to study the sky thanks to modern technologies.

The ticket costs €9 for adults and €6.50 for children aged 4 to 14. Free for children under 4 years old.


In such a vast area, the largest disco in all of Austria could not be missing. The Dome is an extraordinary event venue, where you will be literally enchanted by an imposing and exclusive environment, for an unforgettable evening with selected guests.

For some particular evenings, specific clothing is required.
The price varies depending on the evening and international guests. Tickets can be purchased directly at the cash desk.

The Prater Museum houses a collection of relics that were donated to the city by Hans Pemmer, a local Viennese historian. Here you can admire posters, paintings and photographs, advertising signs, carousel figures and other documents showing the Wurstelprater before its reconstruction after 1945.
Lots of curiosities and information that accompany visitors on a sort of journey through time.
The museum is housed in the Planetarium building.

Open from Friday to Sunday, and on public holidays, from 10:00 to 18:00. The Museum observes a break from 1pm to 2pm.
The ticket costs €5 for adults and €4 for over 65s and students up to 27 years old. Free for under 19s.
FREE access for all visitors on the first Sunday of every month.


Kiosks. Restaurants. Biergartens… without forgetting the inevitable international fast food chains. The gastronomic offer at the Prater is truly wide and varied, to meet the needs of all visitors.
After all, between one attraction and another, there is nothing better than stopping to taste some excellent “Haße”, the typical hot Viennese sausage. Or the classic frankfurter sandwiches.

Lights, music, colors for a truly unique and incredible experience. This awaits you at the Rollercoaster Restaurant, for many an obligatory stop on what to see in the Prater. A futuristic place where dishes are served automatically through a path suspended on tracks. Prices quite high for the quality, but the experience is truly unique!
A beautiful atmosphere, lots of quality and the best glasses of “blonde” await you at the Schweizerhaus, one of the most famous beer gardens in Vienna, divided into small areas with the names of the city’s neighborhoods
Don’t miss the “house dish”.
