    The Prater is a huge public park in Vienna's Second District. Originally a private hunting ground for royalty, it was opened to the public in 1766 by Emperor Joseph II. A large section of the Prater is devoted to the amusement park which contains beer gardens, rides and the Riesenrad, the Giant Wheel that was built to commemorate Franz Josef's Golden Jubilee in 1897.
