Vienna's oldest rollercoaster - Gnome Coaster ("Zwergalbahn")

A ride on Vienna's oldest roller coaster is an absolute must for visitors to the Prater -- the nostalgic classic among the attractions is still a highlight for young and old.

On this journey over mountains and valleys, passengers are speeding through rocky landscapes, dark grottos and pass villages and rivers. The elfish garden gnomes placed along the track give the rollercoaster its second name: the "Gnome Coaster".

Besides the entertaining course, it is the charming settings that make this ride an experience for the entire family, while roller coaster fans appreciate it for its historical significance.
