Hello, It was difficult, confusing which tickets are valid where and how. -Vienna City card + hop on off+ - 20 % ??? -Vienna Card -Hop on Hop off The Vienna Card can only be picked up at certain stations, stood in front of a museum entrance with the headout QR code and could not get in. (until we picked up the ticket we drove black) thought that public transport was included. Mfg Netzer Simon

I just love riding the Ferris wheel and the one at the Prater in Vienna is very special. We didn't have to queue at all with the fast track tickets, it was excellent. We had a great view!

Enjoy a ride on the historic Giant Ferris Wheel of the Austrian capital and a symbol of the world-famous Wiener Prater. A must-see attraction in the city, it allows you to soak up breathtaking views of the entire city and its most popular landmarks. The ride lasts 10 to 20 minutes during which you’ll experience spectacular views of the Vienna Woods hills, the picturesque River Danube, the Marchfeld, and the Pannonian Basin. You can even explore the restaurant, Fotoshop, and Souveniershop on your own.

The Giant Ferris Wheel offers more than a traditional Ferris wheel cart ride. The newly constructed The Wheel of Time – shown through the ‘Panorama’ installation – revives much-loved Prater traditions with artistic and technical audio-visual elements in eight cabins. Taking on two thousand years of the city’s history and stories about the Prater, discover the city in an extremely unique manner – high above the ground (64.75-meters to be exact) on this quintessential Ferris Wheel.
