The Riesenrad in Vienna is a huge and very old ferris wheel. It was originally commissioned in 1897 and is still running. It sits at the entrance to the Prater amusement park (I will speak about the park in a future post).
The cabins are huge and can easily hold about 15 people, and if you visit in the evening you can book a private restaurant cabin. I am not quite sure how they actually get the food into the cabin!
Of course, from the top you have a magnificent view of the city and amusement park. It almost looks like you are looking down at a little model of the city. A must-visit when you are in Vienna!
In my previous post I mentioned the Prater amusement park. It is a massive amusement park just outside the city centre of Vienna. It is easily a 5km loop around the outside of the park, so it can keep you busy (and on your feet) for quite some time!
It has the usual assortment of roller-coasters, scary rides, children rides, food & DRINIS. For us an hour wondering around was plenty of time to spend there (entrance is free but you pay for the rides), but if you love amusement parks you could easily spend the entire day here.
I’m not sure if he is very happy
