Haunted Castle

Kolnhofer, Prater 17, open all the year round
10am - midnight. 
When the Haunted Castle ("Geisterschloß") opened in 1949, it was called Haunted Mill ("Geistermühle").
Later it was remodelled and equipped with more and new scary figures. The huge talking and moving gorilla next to the cashdesk,
maybe the mascot of the Haunted Castle, was put up in 1985. In 1992, the roof of the Haunted Castle was renovated.
The figures and monsters are constantly being renewed. On the trip through the Castle you pass lots of different ghosts,
monsters and other scary figures. Among the different monsters waiting for courageous visitors behind every corner,
you will also encounter a skeleton drinking red wine. Even the decoration of the departure hall is extravagant and and makes
you feel like taking a trip through the dark scary castle!
School classes are welcome.
Variable opening hours are possible; please make appointments.

Old and New at the Wiener Prater

Alfred u. Gerhild Kern
Prater 3, 18b, 105, 1020 Vienna, 
The Alfred and Gerhild Kern company has been resident in the Prater for over 100 years.
The grandfather already had some merry-go-rounds and the first silent films were also presented here in the Prater.
In former times, the Kern cinema was famous in Vienna for showing westerns.

Elite Dodgem

Right after the war, the Kern family started to build up their destroyed business. Among many other things the "Elite" dodgem was built in 1946 
The incomparable trademark of the dodgem is the "Adabei", a figure with a red-lit nose right in the middle of the circuit.
This figure symbolizes the typical friendly Viennese, always grouching a little, but still wearing a friendly smile. 

Merry-Go-Rounds for Children

Of course we also think of our youngest guests. The Kern family also operates 4 merry-go-rounds for children, 2 nostalgic ones, 1 cup and a modern one.
These merry-go-rounds can also be rented on a daily basis. If you throw a party for your children, at home in the garden or in the street,
dont´t hesitate to rent one of our merry-go-rounds. 


The Superman is an ultramodern high-tech experience. At a hight of almost 20 m you will do fourfold loopings, spin around and come down headfirst.
A great and unique feeling, which anyone with enough courage can try safely..


The Kern family operates yet another high-tech roundabout: the "Tornado" is also located on the main road of the Prater ("Strasse des 1. Mai") .
With this roundabout, you can experience flying. At a hight of over 24 m your car spins around, does loopings and goes down headfirst.
