A lovely old Ferris wheel on the edge of the fun fair. Reasonably priced at €12 per adult and takes about 30 mins from buying the ticket to walking out of the souvenir shop. Good views across the wider city but a bit far to...More
Really enjoyed this experience. Carriages are very smart, clean and comfortable with little rocking during movement. Plenty of opportunities to take good photo's and inside there is a marked sky-line map pointing out major landmarks. It is a bit of a walk to get there...More
We were exploring Vienna in December which meant the Park was very quiet. The ride was in interesting roomy cabins that allowed people to sit in the middle. It was a slow ride so gave plenty of chances to take photos. Certainly recommend a ride.
Fun viewing point in Vienna! We did it during the day but it is probably as lovely during night time. As we pre-booked our tickets, we did not wait at all. It takes less than half an hour in total and the cost of a...More
Wiener Riesenrad is an old landmark, one of the symbols of Vienna located in the beautiful Prater Park. It is fairly easy to get there from anywhere in Vienna thanks to the really great metro lines. There are several different rides (we took the regular...More
We did ride the Giant wheel during the day but came back later in the evening for a pre-booked romantic dinner on the Ferris wheel. While it may have been a bit expensive, this was for my husband's 50th birthday so we chose to have...More
Can one visit Vienna and not go on the Riesenrad in the Prater? The Ferris Wheel is the setting of an historic incident in the film - "The Third Man", the Ferris Wheel which is almost 65 metres tall was built in 1897 and provides...More
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
ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.

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.
