Its iconic red numbered gondolas have since been featured in Hollywood movies, from The Third Man with Orson Welles to The Living Daylights starring Timothy Dalton as James Bond!

The line moved very quickly and the customers were kept occupied by displays set up in the queuing area. The views of Vienna were excellent and I would have loved the opportunity to experience two rotations of the Ferris wheel!!
