Vienna - Prater & East of the Danube (Chapter)
This is the Prater & East of the Danube chapter from Lonely Planet's Vienna guidebook.
Between the bends of the Danube Canal and the Danube, Leopoldstadt is just a couple of U-Bahn stops from the Innere Stadt, but at times it feels light years away. Here, you can tiptoe off the beaten track; not least in the 4.5km ribbon of greenery that is the Prater.
- enjoy a slice of Viennese park life in the Prater, with boulevards for strolling, woods for roaming, and the Riesenrad, at its twinkling best after dark
- waltz over to the Johann Strauss Residence, where ball chart-topper 'The Blue Danube' was composed
- see banquet-worthy porcelain in the making behind the scenes at the Porzellanmuseum im Augarten
- restaurants & bars
