Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
We went on a Sunday and it was very busy with families. There are
Many rides there and some are not for the faint hearted. There are message boards scattered throughout so that you can work out where you are. There are a few entrances to this park and a big car park.
The big wheel was very enjoyable as...
We were stunned by the architecture of the university: the shapes reminding of intergalactic ships, bright colours, wood so strangely embracing the walls. Really impressed! And the atmosphere was so nice: some people were playing basketball, some sunbathing, some chilling in the shadow of a tree.
Called in Madame Tussauds whilst visiting Prater Park. Got entry with the Vienna Pass, so didn't have to pay the 23 Euro entry fee.
The exhibits are very life-like and most easily recognisable.
It is only a small exhibition. Whilst I have said that the exhibits are good, I think the entrance fee is high for what is available. I'm...
"Fun park to spend time in biking, walking, touristy rides"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by SPtravels2016
Large amusement park which has ferris wheel in it. Also a wax museum and a chocolate shop which has a chocolate making class. There is lots of green space and walking trails where you can also bike. Yummy park food like cotton candy and ice cream is available.
In Australia we are spoilt for choice, so when you come to Europe you spend a long time searching for something remotely decent. So if you want something like home, this is your place. Coffee takes as it should. Not the extra sweet rubbish. Service is nice and quick. Would come here and make it my local if we lived...
This restaurant was mentioned and recommended in the travel section of a Sydney newspaper. Based on this and Trip Advisor reviews, I booked the restaurant in advance and was not disappointed.
The restaurant is modern and has a good ambiance. We were seated in the outside area and experienced excellent service by staff.
The meal was generous and the schnitzel...
Ok this place is SO GOOD! I just came from Italy and honestly this was way better than most gelato. The lavender and chocolate flavors are amazing. I wished I discovered it earlier so that I could go there more.
I was pleasantly surprised. This restaurant was recommended by a friend in town, and being from California, I was really missing sushi. Their fish is super fresh, and they really took pride in what they were serving. The cocktails were also nice, and a special selection.
The only thing is that if you are a sushi maven, there is a...
As the taxi dropped us off the receptionist ran and opened the front doors for us, a great welcome to the hotel
We could not fault the hotel.
Metro Stop outside the hotel
Couple of places close by to eat
Very helpful staff
Very good breakfast
The Hotel was of an high standard, very clean the bed was so comfortable and the room was a good size. The breakfast was very good and the service was excellent . But the front of house staff was the best I have come across in our travels so friendly and helpful they would go the extra mile for you....
We stayed here just for 1 night. They truly live up to the word "classic". It's location is really amazing, just across the street from the metro station "Praterstern". The amusement park "Prater" famous for its Giant Ferris Wheel is also nearby from the hotel. We completely enjoyed our stay here. The food is also amazing.
The rooms are amazing, modern, the staff are warm and friendly , the location is the best, the bar on the roof top is the best, the breakfast is world class, but it is the views of Vienna that is the real show stopper
I stayed at the hotel with my family 2+3,
The location is near the prat park which you can spend there at least 2hours. The kids loved it allot.
The families room is perfect and very big without the need of connection door.
There is a parking beneath the hotel with additional cost of 23 euro per day.
