Wiener Riesenrad, Vienna Reviews

  • One of the most amazing diners ever had. Breathtaking view with the food definitely on a gourmet level. Great anniversary gift and worth every penny

  • It's pretty to look at but honestly for some reason expected better. The cabins have dirty windows so you can't really see that well outside, they let too many people in one cabin in my opinion and I felt claustrophobic. It could be better ventilated too.

  • Don't buy tickets online - even after 15 minutes my electronic tickets didn't work. Stuff wasn't helpful either. Eventually one guy let us in when I complained for like 5 times. Ferris wheel itself was pretty-much like any similar attraction. Nothing extraordinary and nothing bad. My daughter liked it. I would say it's a bit overpriced as it didn't take long before we had to leave, but in general - worth checking it out.

  • The carriages were spacious and well maintained. The view of the city and the prater was lovely. The miniature history museum is well done. Watching the ferris wheel from the ground at night looks amazing. You even have the opportunity to have a candlelight dinner in one of the gondolas for a special price. Only improvement would be to extend the ride time from one round to two.

  • This is a really great, iconic Vienna location to see. The weather was excellent which made it very nice to visit. Cost was 15 euros each and ride lasted about 15 minutes. The views were obviously wonderful.
