A funfair for many, a locale of nostalgic dreams for some, a green oasis for nearly everyone – and the site of the Riesenrad (‘Ferris wheel’) one of Vienna’s best-loved landmarks. The world-famous Riesenrad and some additional attractions are open throughout the year. But the Prater isn’t just an amusement park: adjacent Stadtpark, one of the most beautiful parks in the world, is also part of the Prater. Here, visitors can take respite from the city and immerse themselves in nature in the heart of Vienna. The Prater’s wetlands were once a favourite hunting grounds of the Hapsburgs. Today, visitors can stroll along Hauptallee, which extends from Praterstern station to the Lusthaus restaurant, and make their way under clusters of poplars and past meadows and dense undergrowth.
