Very interesting to experience the famous wheel used in the Third Man. It's located in the Prater amusement park, which would also make an interesting trip especially if you have children.
It's what you would expect - a 20 minute ferris wheel journey. Each carriage holds about 8 people, and as it's old, it is rickety, but that's part of the charm. Really nice views over Vienna as well, but worth it anyway if you're a fan of the Third Man.
Our tip - we think the price for a ticket is a bit high, but when we visited the Schoenbrunn Zoo, we bought a zoo/riesenrad combo ticket which gave us entry to the ferris wheel for about 3 euros each. They also take amusing photos of you which you can buy at the entrance, again a bit expensive at nearly 10 euros each, but glad we bought one as we now have a funny memento of our trip on the wheel.
