Vienna: Skip-the-Line Giant Ferris Wheel Ride

1. Vienna: Skip-the-Line Giant Ferris Wheel Ride

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.

We travelled from St Stephen’s to the park using the tram U1. An easy journey from the centre of Vienna and arrived close to the amusement park. The U2 tram also goes there. At 10.00 there were no queues; so on a lovely sunny day we enjoyed wonderful views of the Vienna skyline. The wheel travels slowly and stops completely to allow passengers to get on and off. Plenty of opportunities to take photos. Would recommend this experience - the opportunity to ride on the ‘vintage Vienna Eye’ is not to be missed.

It allows us to visit the main attractions (or those that interest us) without having to worry about queues and buying tickets! The guide is very practical in choosing what we want to visit. I recommend.

Uncomplicated collection and use of the pass, very friendly and helpful staff.

Everything in 1 is easy. Only better to drive until 8 pm.

Within a few minutes you were at the gondola, very good
