About Prater

The Wiener Prater is a large public park in Vienna’s 2nd district (Leopoldstadt). If people talk about the Wiener Parter they often mean the “Wurstelprater”. The so-called “Wurstelprater” is the oldest amusement park in the world. But the Wiener Prater consists of more: the Hauptallee (the main alley), the Krieau, and the Praterstadium (Ernst Happel Stadium) belong to the area of the “Wiener Prater”.

Still, the “Wiener Prater” and the “Wurstelprater” are open 24 hours each day – 7 days a week. The entrance is free of charge. Attractions, restaurant businesses, arcade shops, and other leisure facilities are all part of the Wurstelprater.
