The Prater in Vienna

We continue my central-European-trip posts with the Vienna Prater. I wanted to show my sister everything in just 2 days, so we rushed from one place to another in order to see more things. One of the places I thought she should definitely visit, was the Wiener Riesenrad ("Viennese giant wheel").

So, we went there at sunset. The Viennese giant wheel was built in 1897. Its purpose was to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Emperor Franz Josef I, and it was one of the earliest Ferris wheels ever built.

As we were going higher, the sun was going deeper into the west...

Have you ever been on a Ferris wheel and did you like it? Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!

  8. Such beautiful sights! I've been on a ferris wheel and it's both exhilarating and scary! Lol

  9. The last time I went on a ferris wheel was on Monday! I would love to go on this one in Vienna if I return to the city for a visit.

  10. Nope! Never went on the Ferris Wheel. On my most recent trip to Vienna, we spent only a few days in the city. I never had even heard about this! I know I would've been riding this alone, though... My boyfriend has a big fear of heights! Next time.
