Description

And now for something wheely different in Vienna. Get high above the Austrian capital for a whole new perspective on the city's awesome architecture, and the Danube. This smartphone ticket gets you one ride on Vienna's skyline-stealing Giant Ferris Wheel.

You will probably see this towering beauty way before you reach it - it's so big that its silhouette is visible from miles away!

Gaze over the rooftops of Vienna from its iconic Giant Wheel, a landmark that was first constructed in 1897 in honor of Emperor Franz Joseph, and his ascension to the throne.

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!

Online booking was better than the interaction at the ticket desk for tickets. The desk also only takes cash

This is a must do if you visit Vienna. No need to redeem the tickets, just scan at the entrance and walk through, making it a very smooth experience. Also, no having to line up for the tickets...
