After years of reconstruction, Praterstern in the Leopoldstadt district now appears in its new, finished shape. The centre of the huge square around Praterstern train station is completely devoted to public transport – not only suburban trains, but also metro, tram and bus lines meet there, while busy four-lane streets encircle the station area and form Vienna’s biggest roundabout. This traffic-hub feel results in Praterstern being a place of transit rather than a destination itself, although interesting spots are close-by. First of all, Praterstern is the gateway to the popular recreation and amusement park Prater. Since Fluc – easily one of the best clubs, bars and concert venues in town – has set up its improvised building on the square, the area increasingly attracts the young and hip. However, the square that is frequented day and night, is also a gathering place for alocoholics and homeless people.
