Time of year
For us it was a must. Thankfully when we arrived there wasn’t a queue. It was a clear day and we had great views. Hopefully wheel meet again... as we’d love to visit Christmas Market time.

One lap for 12 euros is expensive and there isn’t much to see when you are up there. However it’s a shame to come this far and not have a go I guess.
It was a lovely Ferris Wheel, well organised and provided beautiful views, can't fault it and couldn't improve the experience thank you
Quick and friendly staff. The ride goes slowly so you have several opportunities to get some great shots of Vienna with your camera. Not to crowded and everyone shared the space so you could get different views for pictures. Cab was very clean.
