Local name: Wiener Prater

Wiener Prater is a public park with an area of 1700 ha in the center of Vienna, located between the Danube and the Danube Canal. A few centuries ago, the park area was the hunting grounds of the Habsburg family, which the Emperor Józef II gave to the inhabitants of the city in 1766. The name comes from the Latin word "pratum" and means meadows. In addition to the recreational function of Vienna, the green lungs of the city also play the role of a leisure and sports center.
