What People Are Saying About Prater
Had a great view of Vienna at night by riding the Ferris wheel. I loved the historic murals, dioramas/models, and drawings inside the waiting area for this attraction. The one drawback was buying the tickets online. Did that while in the park because the prior purchase line was much shorter. However, you have to print out the ticket and still present it at the regular line. After purchasing online had to go over to the main information desk and ask them to print it to then take the paper ticket back to the regular line. So, I went through three lines after purchasing it online. Ugh. Fortunately, the regular line had shortened from the time I first started to purchase the tickets online.
I was visiting the Ferris Wheel with my boyfriend on a Sunday late afternoon. It already got dark outside so we could see the Viennese skyline and street lights. Was a perfect point of time and very romantic as well. We had a whole gondola for us and could enjoy the 15 minutes surrounding. Next time we will take the arrangement where you get a candle light dinner in the gondula. Please dress a bit warmer during Winter times, as there is no heater inside.
