Full description

Experience a ride on the famous Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel, a landmark of the Austrian capital and a symbol for the world-famous Wiener Prater. With its iconic silhouette, the Giant Ferris Wheel is a must-see attraction for all visitors to Vienna. A ride on the Wheel is just as important to a visit to Vienna as the Schönbrunn Palace, St. Stephen's Cathedral, or the Spanish Riding School. A ride on this significant and fascinating structure provides spectacular views over the whole city. The Giant Ferris Wheel is a true cultural and architectural highlight for any guest in the city: you haven't really visited Vienna until you've taken a ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel and marveled at the breathtaking views over the roofs of Vienna! The Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel rotates at a speed of 2.7 kilometers per hour. A complete rotation takes just over 4 minutes, but only when the Ferris wheel has not stopped to let passengers on or off. More commonly, a ride takes between 12 and 15 minutes, during which time you can enjoy picturesque views over Vienna and the surrounding area, such as the hills of the Vienna Woods, the Danube, the Marchfeld, and the Pannonian Basin.

    Ottima attrazione situata al Prater di Vienna. Comodo utilizzare il biglietto acquistato online per evitare le code in biglietteria NOTA: Siamo comunque passati (saltando la coda) in biglietteria per cambiare i biglietti; in quanto quello acquistato è un voucher che poi verrà sostituito con dei carinissimi biglietti datati 1897 (data inaugurazione della ruota)

    The truth is that the experience is highly recommended, the views of the city are impressive, for me I have a lot of vertigo, without any problem, but you have to tell things as they are, the return trip lasted 10 minutes, not 20, and the queue that take away is the one about the tickets, not the one about riding the Ferris wheel, it is also true that neither of the 2 exceed 5 minutes, even so, I recommend it and I would do it again if I return to Vienna.

    As always, this booking "Ride on the Ferris Wheel" in Vienna via Get Your Guide went without any problems. With the mobile ticket we were able to skip the line and get in line for the ride. After a few minutes it was time and you had a wonderful view over the Prater and the city of Vienna.
