"I've got to recommend that..." Wiener Riesenrad - Giant Ferris Wheel Tip by Venturingnow

  The View of Vienna
by Venturingnow

I've got to recommend that you ride the ferris wheel in Prater park with you camera turned on a ready to go. If it's a good day outside, like when I rode the wheel, you'll be rewarded with some very good views of both the whole Prater park and the city Vienna. Don't worry about the fact that you're moving pretty quickly on the ferris wheel, you're photos should blur up at all if you hold your hands still like normal. I though it was pretty cool to get up in the air and see all of the places that I'd been walking around all day long, what a lot I was doing!

Address: Riesenradplatz 1, 1020 Wien
Directions: Take the U-Bahn Praterstern and then follow all of the carnie signs. You'll go through a park, by a hostel, and across one road before reaching the park.
