Vienna: Skip-the-Line Giant Ferris Wheel Ride
- Admire the fantastic views over Vienna from a height of approximately 65 meters
- Discover a landmark of the Austrian capital and a symbol of the world-famous Wiener Prater
- Look over Vienna and the surrounding area, including the hills of the Vienna Woods, the Danube, the Marchfeld, and the Pannonian Basin
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.
The Giant Ferris Wheel has even more to offer, from rides in traditional Ferris wheel carts to small parties, press conferences, or even romantic dinners for two in the luxury carts. In addition, the newly built “Panorama” offers a retrospective of the history and stories of Vienna’s past 2,000 years. Guests can also experience the historic city of Vienna up close in the replicated Ferris wheel carts.
