In 1766, Joseph II opened the imperial hunting grounds to the public. Carousels and Punch and Judy shows, but also spectacular firework displays and experimental balloon flights, were the first attractions. The Prater Museum in the Planetarium offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of this special Viennese institution.
