    “One of the most marvelous and fascinating structures in the world,” man I hope that’s a joke. I don’t think a random Ferris wheel represents Vienna or its people, I think they too would laugh about that. It’s a touristy place but is nowhere near the best thing in this city.

  • Visited on a dark and wet evening. The carriage was almost empty so could easily walk around. The views would have been better on a clearer evening but it was well worth the visit. Highly recommended but try and go in better weather for decent views.

  • The view of Vienna from above during the night is amazing. There is a bit of waiting involved to get to ride the wheel but its worth the time. The cabins are quite big and allow a larger group of people in so its fit for groups as well.

  • One of the most of not the most iconic place in Vienna. The Ferris Wheel looks just as formidable and beautiful in person as in photos and postcards. The view from the top is great but don't expect the absolute best, especially on gloomy days. The ferris wheel is also located within a theme park, so there's lots of fun to be had if you're into this kind of entertainment. All in all, a must go when in Vienna.

  • Amazing experience. The cabins are spacious and comfortable. You are able to take pictures from each side and height. Before you go for the ride you are offered to have a picture for 10 euros.

  • What a great place for a family or even just 2 of you. Great food, great drinks and a lot of fun. Some bits a little expensive but you don't have to do those things.
