…in Prater, where the dandelions are popping up all over. 🙂
Prater is 250 years this year, and there are many events scheduled throughout the year to celebrate. Yesterday I went into Prater to catch a glimpse of the flower parade featuring horse carriages and various old vehicles. The weather wasn’t great, but could have been worse! 🙂
If you walk through Prater in the morning, you get a whole other perspective on it. I caught this scene one morning walking to Uni. The ponies were going to the carousel, where they go around all day.
You also notice new things in the daylight when the park is empty. I don’t think I have ever noticed this dragon before…
I think Prater is one of my favourite places to hang out in Vienna. It may be a bit tacky and the music pumping out from all the rides is about as great as the smurf CDs you had when you were a kid….. But you loved that CD. Just admit it. 😉
People waiting for the Wiesn to open at noon. At the Wiener Wiesn-Fest you can quench your thirst for beer and see people dressed up in Tracht, it’s basically Vienna’s own Oktoberfest. It keeps getting bigger every year, so I guess it’s here to stay. 🙂
