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
Despite the fast track with Vienna Pass and only few people ahead of us, we had to wait 15 mins. Some of the cabins are for special events or romantic dinners so the whole things stops when they need to serve the next course or...More
Ericted in 1897 real embleme of romantic Vienna, the Prater ferris Wheel is a real must see!
The tour last about 15 minutes inside à very spatious & confortable cabin wich looks very much like à train wagon car. That's only adding to the charm...More
One of the original big wheels, made of wood and iron, nothing plastic and steel about this one.
It’s an experience and surprisingly comfortable and feels absolutely safe.

We visited the Viennese Riesenrad during our stay in Vienna in October. It’s only a five minute walk from Paterstern metro station on line U1. Admission to the park is free and you just pay for each individual ride. Admission to the Giant Ferris wheel...More
Having seen it in movies created expectations, so it fell below being a bit shabby and clumsily commercialized. At 10€ pp (cash only) it came a bit pricey for a 15 minutes ride, having been able to look at the city for about 7 minutes....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.
