The greatest attraction for kids is the Prater Amusement Park, but kids will also enjoy performances at the Spanish Riding School, climbing the tower of St. Stephan's Cathedral, and visiting the exhibition at the Natural History Museum. And nothing quite tops a day like a picnic in the Vienna Woods.
Other worthwhile museums for children include the Museum für Unterhaltungskunst (MUK), Karmelitergasse 9 (tel. 06/764604-794 or 01/21106), a tribute to clowns and circus performers throughout the centuries. It is open every Sunday 10am to 1pm and on the first and third Thursday of every month from 7 to 9pm.
