Before the Vienna Prater was opened to the public by Joseph II in 1766, it was the scene of large-scale hunting events organised by the court and the nobility.

After opening to the public, coffee houses and inns soon settled in the area. On the city side, the Wurstelprater was built with ring-game swings, shooting galleries, Punch and Judy show and even balloon rides were offered.

The Austrian emperors have left their mark through many events, battle depictions, buildings, world exhibitions and much more.
