The Bohemian Prater (German: Böhmischer Prater) is a small amusement park at the edge of Vienna. It dates to the second half of the 19th century, and some of the rides are more than 100 years old. The name is derived from the larger Wiener (Viennese) Prater.

On 11 December 1944, during World War II, the Bohemian Prater was almost completely destroyed by a bomb attack.

The centre of the Bohemian Prater forms the meeting centre Tivoli.

Ferris wheel[edit]

As with the large Prater in Vienna, there is a Ferris wheel. It is a 21.5-metre (71 ft) tall cantilever design with 14 passenger cars, and is operated by Reinhardt.[1]
