What people are saying about Prater

I found it very nice to see Vienna from a different side at a leisurely pace. However, I would have liked some information about the loudspeaker (information about certain buildings, the importance of the Danube for Vienna, information about the locks, etc.)

Good food in comfortable surroundings, the sun didn’t shine but that didn’t matter as it was nice and warm inside. The staff where very helpful. It would of been better if the boat had gone a little further but I don’t know if it could.

Beautiful boat trip through Vienna Highly recommended even when it's raining. The service and the gastronomic offers are perfect
