Wiener Riesenrad, Vienna Reviews

  • A beautiful old Ferris wheel which takes a look at a Vienna landmark and how it came to be. Loved the exhibit at the base of the wheel (once you have paid to get in). The views of the park from the wheel are wonderful ... especially at night!

  • Very interesting attraction in Vienna. You can see the city from above while having a feeling of been into the 80's or the 90's when you get into the park. Quite a mix of feelings. I recommend visiting around sunset time for better photos. Entrace to the park is free but for the giant wheel the price is around 10 euros per person

  • I really like ferring wheels. It's amazing to be on the top and see cities from that view. Vienna's wheel is not the highest one but it's a great opportunity to see the entire picture of the city and feel its mood. If you have much time staying in Vienna, I would recommend to order a table in a cabin to take a romantic dinner) It's really cool and unforgettable. We will do next time when visit Vienna again)

  • 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!

  • The must see attraction in Vienna. It's so iconic and if you've seen the film The Third Man then you have to take a ride on the wheel. Trip lasts about 12 - 15 minutes and the views are spectacular.
