Liliputbahn

For anyone who grew up in Vienna knows this very charming place, but no one is too old for this if you visit it right now!

This real miniature train for real miniature people runs through the Prater on a 3.9 km track. The ride lasts around 20 mins and goes through forest and green. Though (or maybe hence) the ride is rather unspectacular, it is a memory that has stuck with me a good 15 years since my last ride; an absolutely critical and life- and imagination-forming experience for any kid in Vienna.

How to get there: Go straight past the big wheel, pass “Crazy Mouse” and the Pony round-about and turn right at the “Danube Jump” until you see the “Liliputbahn” sign. Optional: follow tracks.

time: open from march 15 to october 31 | website: www.prater.at
