"A monument that moves" Wiener Riesenrad - Giant Ferris Wheel Tip by Manara


This ferris wheel is a contemporary of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. I see both of them as monuments of late 19th century engineering.
As I love watching the Eiffel Tower from beneath, for the impression of strength and stability it gives me, so my preferred view of the Riesenrad is from inside a wagon looking towards the centre of the wheel.

Address: Volksprater
Directions: Praterstern is the nearest stop of the metro (U1).
