This stadium opened in 1931 as the Prater Stadion. It was designed by the noted architect Otto Ernst Schweizer. It was later renamed the Ernst Happel Stadium, after the renowned Austrian football player and coach. With a capacity of 49825 seats, it is home to the Austrian National Football Team. The venue will be expanded to a whopping 53000 for the 2008 European Football Championships. Located right next to Prater Park, winding your way to the stadium is not much of a problem.
