There are certain special moments you only want to share with that special someone: proposals, anniversaries, birthdays or when you simply want to say "thank you".
The Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel makes special moments unforgettable. You will be 65 meters above ground - with the city on the Danube lying at your feet. As one of Vienna’s most famous landmarks, the Giant Ferris Wheel offers a spectacular view of the city and charms with its romantic flair.
The Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel located at the heart of the Prater was constructed in 1897 to celebrate the 50th throne jubilee of emperor Franz Joseph I. It has been turning ever since, for over 100 years now, without ever losing any of its typical Viennese charm.
This is partially due to its distinctive cabins, built according to the original plans from 1897. While the cabins today are made of wood, just like they were when the Giant Ferris Wheel was first built, they nevertheless offer modern-day comfort: air conditioning as well as heating have been installed in 2016.
Each cabin disposes of an integrated sound system, which allows you to play your favorite music during your candle-light dinner, via bluetooth, AUX cable or your iPhone (+cable).
Then as now the exceptional view delights and allows you and your loved one(s) to spend a special evening and make lasting memories on Valentine’s Day, Christmas (until 4:45 p.m.) or your birthday.
