Wiener Riesenrad, Vienna Reviews

  • I really enjoyed the whole experience! Before you go on the wheel itself you get to see a room with moving models - perfect for anyone (couples, families, solo-travellers etc). Then you get the option to have your photo taken, I didn't do this but it could be a really nice momento. After that you get to go on the wheel. The models and photo break up the queue making it perfect for families with younger children who may get bored waiting in a huge queue. They also have toilets to use just before you get on the wheel which are handy. The wheel itself gives stunning views and doesn't move too quickly. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

  • Going on this giant Ferris wheel is a one of a kind experience, for sure. The wheel turns slowly, so you have time to enjoy a great view of Vienna. The only problem I had with it was the HUGE line of people waiting to get on the Ferris wheel. Seemed like everybody wanted to go on the wheel when we went. 4 stars!

  • It's very suitable for adults & old timer to enjoy ferries wheels. For kids, the fun is only when we are up there .... enjoy!!!

  • I didn't actually go into the Ferris wheel but loved walking around. There are so many things to do and look at! The Fair itself is free to go I ...unlike the ones in the states that charge you to just go in. You can really be there all day but make sure to go at night as well.

  • Well stoping million weird places because someone in the cool part of the wheel was not great
