Wiener Riesenrad, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review
Great views of Vienna free entry if you bought the Vienna Pass the park looks like a place you could spend most of the day and evening. I only had one day for sightseeing so tried to fit as much in as I could so didn't have long to spent here. the staff I meet were all friendly, polite and helpfull. Great transport links (if you do miss your last hop on and off bus which is inc in the Vienna Pass) Large Train station 5 min or so away on foot. Cheap enough, I had bought a 72hr pass just in case.
Great Wheel. It's really famous and a main attraction in the prater. You can also rent gondolas for events like dinners etc
The famous wheel lived up to our expectations. It's a slow, old fashioned ride, but great views from the top. No queues when we visited at peak tourist time, quite a surprise. Of course, the Third Man and Cuckoo Clocks come to mind - although I believe the famous scene was actually filmed at Shepperton. 10 minute ride for 10 Euro
This is the famous Ferris wheel from the 1949 film "The Third Man". It offers a beautiful view of the city. We went at sunset and the photos turned out stunning. A regular ticket gets you a single trip around the wheel which lasts 15 minutes, however, there are other options including private dining in the cabin.
20 euros per person to ride on Europes oldest ferris wheel, expensive.
