One of the oldest operating Ferris Wheels in the world, the Wiener Riesenrad is more than just an amusement park ride, it is a historic landmark. Take a spin on this 213-feet high attraction for exceptional views of Vienna, or book a romantic dinner in a gondola for an unforgettable evening.

This legendary wheel has survived a tumultuous history dating back to the reign of the Habsburgs. Built in 1897 to honor Emperor Franz Josef I’s 50th Jubilee, the Wiener Riesenrad has been one of the city’s most beloved attractions ever since; it has even played a prominent role in the movie adaption of Graham Greene’s novel “The Third Man”. Located in the Prater, Vienna’s famous amusement park, the ferris wheel provides unique views over the entire city.
 
Planning on popping the big question? Do it in the perfect setting high above Vienna’s rooftops, just as the sun is setting on the horizon.  Reserve the ferris wheel’s Crystalline Luxury Cabin for a three-course meal and a romantic ambience that will enchant your loved one. With spectacular views, Swarovski crystals, candlelight, champagne, and just the two of you, you’ll never forget the moment that will change your lives forever.
