One finds the wax figure museum very easy. It is
directly behind the entrance to the
amusement park Prater,
if you come from the subway (station Praterstern).
Among the replicas in Madame Tussauds are international
stars like Elvis Presley, Johnny Depp, David Hasselhoff
and Barack Obama and many, many more. But the wax replicas
of many Austrian celebrities such as football players Hans
Krankl and David Alaba are also great. Winter sports
enthusiasts, such as skier Hermann Maier, should of course
not be missing in Austria as a skiing country. The perhaps
most famous Austrian, the composer Mozart, is also
exhibited as a wax figure. Other musical personalities
include Johann Strauss, Peter Alexander and Falco. Arnold
Schwarzenegger is currently (March 2017) in the entrance
area, you can admire him without paying admission.
Especially worth seeing in our opinion is the completely
new part (opening was early 2017) "Sisi Uncovered
Experience". It tells the story of Sissi (Empress
Elisabeth of Austria) and her husband Emperor Franz Joseph
I using state-of-the-art 3D technology. The museum visitor
can even smell typical smells from that time.
Opening hours 2018 Madame Tussauds Vienna: The Wax
Museum on the Prader is currently (Feb 2018) open daily
from 10 am to 6 pm.

Tussauds Vienna: It is a private museum which lives only
on admission. The entrance fee at the box office is 23
Euro per person (as at the beginning of 2018). As there is
often a lot going on at the box office (queues, waiting
times) it makes sense to buy a ticket in advance on the
Internet. Various providers offer such tickets.

preferred admission (also called Skip-The-Line-Ticket or
ticket without queue) online. With these tickets you don't
have to queue and you save a lot of time. A good
