The Prater is a large public park in Vienna's 2nd district, Leopoldstadt, and is synonymous with the Wurstelprater, an amusement park that too is often simply called "Prater", and which includes amongst many other things, the famous Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel. However, the park was not always available for the amusement of all. Prater comes from the Latin pratum, meaning meadow, and for centuries the area served as the private hunting ground of the Emperor. It wasn't until 1766 that it was declared free for public enjoyment and when coffee-houses and cafes were permitted to be established and the fun-park could begin to take form. The amusement park itself contains many of the classic theme park rides - bumper cars, carousels and roller coasters, along with Madame Tussauds wax works cabinet, but the Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel dominates the landscape. One of Vienna's most popular tourist attractions, the wheel was the tallest Ferris wheel from 1920-1985, standing at 64.75m tall. Appearing in star-studded movies like The Living Daylights and in famous novels like The Star of Kazan, the Riesenrad wheel has become an unmistakably recognizable mainstay of the Viennese skyline. Not only is the park a wonderful retreat for those seeking a thrill, but it is also eminently easy to access. Leopoldstadt lies in the very center of the city and in 2004 major renovations to the Wurstelprater began, with a new underground railway line arriving in active service in 2008. This has created two stops along the Prater that intersect with the Vienna U-Bahn and complements the Wien Praterstern railway station that was already in place. The kind of deeply practical and accessible nature of the area, along with its potential for amusement and life-affirming experience is what we have captured with our Prater range.
