You cannot visit Vienna without a trip to the Riesenrad. It is accessible via the U Bahn and is on the entrance to an amusement park. We visited just as it was opening so it wasn’t very busy. Entry cost us €10 per adult. You...More

Pleasant ride, however I was a little disappointed with the day views and feel it would perhaps be more picturesque at night. Will definitely have to go on again in the evening.

Get a fantastic panorama of Vienna from the 15minute trip in this tall ferries wheel. Is part of a fun park, only a 25 minute walk from Vienna centre or a quick trip on U1 Metro line.

If you visit Vienna and the Prater park, taking a ride in the giant ferris wheel is sort of a must. Both the size and height are daunting and you get a very nice view of the city. If you want to do something out...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
