About Vienna’s Theme ParkYou are located in a historic and very active amusement park. It is not by chance that most of the city's major festivals and attractions take place in Vienna's Amusement Park, called Prater. It is the oldest amusement park in the world and if the title "old" is not enough, then it is also the largest park in Austria.
The park is located right on the banks of the Danube River. When it opened, in 1895, the park included only one attraction, Venice in Vienna. It was an artificial lake-like lagoon, where the Viennese were able to sail and watch the models of the Vienna city miniature models. It was created by the architect Oskar Marmork and was the cornerstone of the amusement park.
Two years later, the park began adding other attractions, including the Vienna Ferris Wheel, built in 1897, from which until now see an amazing view all of Vienna. In addition, a theater was built in the park.
