Ich bin ein Wiener: Der Prater

p marilynMarilyn looks as alive and fresh as ever.

Der Prater, Weiner Prater, is an amusement park which is since 1875. It is one of those old time amusement parks with different rides and fun houses. During the summer it is busy, with plenty of Vienna residents and tourists keeping the rides busy. This time of the year, it is a little cool, and some things are closed. Still the Prater is a great way to see some fun visual graphics, a lot kind of hokey, but all in good fun. This visit I took a few shots of old favorites. I really deserve to merge my visits for one good post on this fun place. It costs nothing to go into, and of course if you know The Third Man, you will know exactly what the WienerRiesenrad is.
