    “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.

  • Possibly one of the most significant experiences of my entire life. Seriously though... full disclosure I'm a massive Third Man fan so for me this was great fun. It's actually quite a nice experience and the views are good.

  • I had a few hours to kill while in Vienna for work and this seemed like a good way to get a birds eye view of the city. Alice was good at 12 euros it lasted about 20-30 minutes and offered great changing panoramic views of one side of the city on the way up and the other going down. It was windy afternoon when I did it and all dealt very stable. Would recommend it if you are in the area. Would be great during sunset!

  • A superb piece of Viennese history, with a place in movie legend as well thanks to such features as The Third Man and The Living Daylights. Even beyond the legacy of this mighty wheel though, there are some incredible views across Vienna - a must see if you're in the neighbourhood! :D

  • A fun place to catch a view of the city and the entire theme park. Recommend visiting this place in the afternoon and especially at night as the entire theme park lights up with beautiful colours. You can see most of the city lights.

  • A really must do when you are in the Prater amusement park! The ticket is €12 and will give you entree to a little museum of the ferries wheel and a 10-15min spin in the ferrie whee. (Keep in mind you only make 1 round in the wheel, so enjoy everything you can see!!)
