Not knowing much about Vienna, the city was my oyster! One of the few things i did know, was from watching the movie "Before Sunrise" in the 1990's and seeing the actors visit the Riesenrad at the Prater. I believe it's approx 120 years and...More

Went to Prater with the purpose of riding on this famous ferris wheel. Very disappointing. It only went round once and stopped every few minutes to unload and load the carriages. At 10 euros each it was a rip-off. The museum at the entrance to...More

Great views of Vienna. I wonderful construction in steel. Humming the theme from The Third Man is optional but recommended.

Given its age the wheel itself is a fascinating bit of engineering. If you are interested in large construction projects seeing how is built and powered will be of interest. It is next to an amusement area with several types of rides, so the location...More

Beautiful view of Vienna. A must for a couple date! There is also a big fun park near, good for roller coaster lovers! Food is there also enough, many little restaurants with Austrian dishes.

Only meaningful if you love the movie, but amusement park is classic and great for kids. There are rides there you don't see in the United States.

For a 120 year old ferris wheel, it is worth the 10 euros to ride and enjoy the views. My recommendation, do NOT pay the 345 euros for a "private" dinner. The compartment is private, but the views are not. 16 people in the next...More

Even those of us, who are scared of height places, could easily join us to the ride. Good views and safe.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and

Once the sun goes down what you see in the short distance from the Riesenrad is mostly the lights of the fun fair around the wheel. Beyond the city is well lit. But I wouldn't say it's the most spectacular view night or day.
