This ferris wheel, built in 1897 is an attraction of Vienna, and not just because it was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world from the 20s to 1985 with its 61 meter of height. It was one of the things I liked most in the Austrian capital. When you get on one of the cars, it gives you a full turn quite slowly, since between load and unload passengers can be a 15 minute journey. From this feris wheel you get the best views of the city, because Vienna is a very low city. Besides the wheel, before we get there, there's a museum that tells the story of Vienna Prater and animated models that are inspired by the ancient circuses.
