Since 1991 there are Kolarik's leisure facilities and restaurants in the Prater. Founded by Elisabeth Kolarik, the associated restaurants Luftburg, Praterfee with the Feenzelt, Himmelreich and the children's amusement park Kinderwelt are characterised above all by one thing: Your family friendliness. No wonder - the restaurateur is herself the mother of five children and five-time grandmother. Learn more about us!

An excursion into the countryside, a round on the Ferris wheel or a ride on the Liliput train - the Vienna Prater offers pure variety. The same goes for the Luftburg, which spoils you with hearty Austrian cuisine in organic quality. Previously awarded the bronze seal, since April 2019 the Luftburg has carried the gold seal "Natur Gut Essen" of the City of Vienna for the 100% use of organic food, the fresh preparation and the rich vegetarian offer. In short: enjoy with a clear conscience.

Located near the main avenue in the Prater, the Luftburg also borders on the children's world with its numerous Luftburg models for children. The nearby Praterfee, with its air castles, trampolines and the children's motorway, also offers great fun for the youngest guests.

Kolariks Family Business

2019

The Luftburg becomes organic: from the Stelze as a speciality of the house to the Schnitzel and the Spareribs, only fresh organic food of purely natural origin will be served at the beginning of 2019. In addition to the certificate of the Austria Bio Garantie inspection body, the family business, which was awarded a bronze seal in 2018, is also awarded the "Natur Gut Essen" gold seal by the City of Vienna for its 100% use of organic food, fresh preparation and rich vegetarian offerings.

2017

The invention of the Luftburg celebrates its 40th anniversary. In gastronomy, the regional and organic line will be further expanded. The potatoes are now also offered all year round in organic quality. The roofing of the guest garden will be further optimized to be protected from sudden rain.

2016

In spring 2016 the leisure area of the Praterfee was enriched by Bumper Boats on the Feenwasser. In all gastronomy establishments, the line of relying on organic quality and regional origin is also increasingly being pursued. The range includes organic milk in coffee, salads and herbs in organic quality. In line with sustainability, the first electric company vehicle was purchased.

2015

The guest garden was extended by an innovative garden canopy. It supports the existing tree shading and also protects against sudden rain. With a dimmable LED lighting system, the shading system ensures pleasant lighting conditions even in the evening. Sitting in the guest garden you can experience the digestibility of a freshly tapped beer particularly well and also, on a sunny day, admire the refreshing golden colour. Looking back on the last few years, the Kolarik family is proud that the Luftburg has developed into one of the most popular meeting places in Vienna's Prater. Quality, innovation and family friendliness as well as the many valuable employees in the service of our esteemed guests are the building blocks for the success of Kolarik's leisure facilities.

2014

The newly designed guest garden of the Luftburg was opened. Sycamore trees have been planted to give the guests wonderful tree shade. A herb garden supplies the kitchen with fresh herbs, decorative water elements provide a pleasant, playful atmosphere. In addition, the guest garden was equipped with a fog cooling system, which provides cooling and relaxation from the heated city. The guest garden and terrace now offer space for up to 850 guests.

2013

Every chef's dream comes true: the kitchen in Kolarik's Luftburg has been extended to 200 square metres. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, this extra space is a guarantee for quality work and maximum enjoyment.

2011

In spring 2011, the Praterfee was supplemented by a giant air castle slide at an unprecedented height of 14 metres and 22 metres in length. In summer, the starting shot was fired for the new children's motorway, in which (even big!) children can take their rounds in electric cars.

In summer 2011 the Luftburg presented table taps for self-service in the guest garden, true to the motto "Self tapped tastes best". An enjoyable pleasure for convivial rounds and all beer lovers.

2008

In spring 2008, the Restaurant Luftburg was rebuilt in an elaborate style and extended by a light-flooded glass palace, in which connoisseurs can take a pleasurable break in a modern ambience. In the course of this, the terrace and garden were extended to 750 seats and embellished with lavender and young chestnut trees in 2010.

2005

In 2005 the Praterfee was extended by the Feenzelt. The popular event tent offers seats for groups of up to 300 people. The most family-friendly restaurant in the Prater now offers everything from a breastfeeding room and children's playroom to your own children's menu for a successful visit to the restaurant for the whole family.

2000

At the end of 2000, Elisabeth Kolarik was able to acquire an object that had been dear to her for some time: the Praterfee. The building in need of renovation with tennis courts directly adjacent to the Prater Hauptallee was renovated in 2002 and 2006. The popular catering business is complemented by surrounding attractions such as the Salto trampoline, air castles, a spacious trampoline facility and asphalt floor railways. Since 2004, Kolarik's leisure facilities have also been offering catering, with suckling pigs and crispy barbecue stilts proving particularly popular.

1997

In 1997 Elisabeth Kolarik acquired the company Restaurant & Biergarten Himmelreich and had it redesigned. The Salto-Trampolino, on which one can jump up to nine metres high with harnesses, completed the investments this year.

1992

Soon Elisabeth Kolarik realized the need to entertain her customers who came to rent and buy the air castles. She then opened the café-restaurant Luftburg in 1992. In 1994, the unusual petting zoo in the immediate vicinity of the new restaurant became an amusement park for children. With the arrival of air castles, air slides and a children's motorway, the name was born: Kinderwelt.

1977

The company's history began with the invention of the Luftburg by Elisabeth Kolarik in 1977. It was her idea to use the material of hot-air balloons to create soft playgrounds in a wide variety of shapes on which children can let off steam without injuring themselves.

1976-1996

Between 1976 and 1996 her five children Marianne, Barbara, Paul, Julia-Sofie and Elisabeth-Marie were born. For Elisabeth Kolarik, they are the most important thing in life, but they have also always been a strong motivator to gear their businesses especially to the needs of families. Since 2002 she has been married to Ing. Heinz Hummel, who brought one daughter, Anna-Carina, into the marriage. Kolarik's leisure facilities are a family business in the truest sense of the word. Daughter Marianne and son Paul have been actively involved in the company for years and together with owner Elisabeth Kolarik form the management. The younger ones contribute their ideas from children for children.

Today, Kolarik's leisure facilities consist of the restaurants Luftburg, Himmelreich and Praterfee and are on a continuous growth course
. The restaurant Luftburg with its attached children's world and the Praterfee with its air castles, trampolines and the children's motorway offer a jumpy pleasure especially for the little guests. Not to forget the rental and sale of the famous and popular Luftburgen.

1954

The head of the family Elisabeth Kolarik comes from one of the most famous Prater families. She was born on 1 January 1954 as the youngest child of the owners of the Schweizerhaus Else and Karl Kolarik. Her two siblings, Lydia and Karl, run it today. Elisabeth Kolarik herself worked for many years in her parents' company and was managing director until 1991.
