Wiener Riesenrad, Vienna Reviews

  • Great view from this 65m high wheel! It is perfect both at nights and during daytime. Cabins are very nice with small benches inside. The ride takes around 10-12 minutes with a small break on the top for the great photos! Perfect for the ones who like great photos!

  • Offers an aerial view of the city. Good place to get young children fr an outing. There is a history museum located adjacent to this place, offering a good overview of Austrian history. Good place to visit during the summers when the weather is good. A fun place for many entertainment.

  • The wheel turns slowly with a small stops, so you have time to enjoy a great view of Vienna. Before the wheel itself you get to see a museum with moving models describing the history of the wheel. Then you get the option to have your photo taken. Also you can book a whole cabin and have a romantic dinner.

  • Worth paying and waiting in line to ride! Great city views. The ride-cars are huge and fit like 10-15 people, so you will ride with others. Have a dinner service that you have to make WAY in advance reservations but you sit in the car alone and get a seven-course meal and have your own waiter and every time around is a different course.

  • It is a beautiful experience and it is better to do it at sunset, to buy the ticket it has to be paid in cash, but there is a Vienna Pass that you can buy to access to the Ferris Wheel and many other atractions. Place is very nice and you need a lot of time to go there, not only to the ferris but to the park itself. There are even some museums around that you may find very interesting in case you want to take a break from the roller coasters. I loved the people and the ambience. They made us feel really welcome there and if you have time do not miss the roller coaster restaurant.
