In Carol Reed's THE THIRD MAN, the Wiener Riesenrad (German for "Viennese giant wheel"), shot in beautiful black and white, facilitates a pivotal meeting between Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles.

Treat life like a ferris wheel ride....you must get past the fear to enjoy the view... I see nothing in space as promising as the view from a Ferris wheel ✔⭐ (quotes mix)

At 64.75 metres high, you can catch a great view of Vienna from the top of this Ferris Wheel!

You may want to visit this landmark of Vienna in the footsteps of the immortal movie “The Third Man” or simply enjoy the view of the city from almost 200 feet up.

Bond and Milovy take a ride on the Grand Ferris Wheel in The Living Daylights (1987). Director John Glenn also worked with the wheel in The Third Man (1949) in which he was Assistant Sound Editor.

Sheds on a wheel, bit disappointing if the truth be told.

Once a year the Prater Unser festival brings techno onto the wheels of steel. Watch out for this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2ZZKRoX5sU

Schon aus der Froschperspektive, vor dem Einsteigen, beeindruckt es: das Wiener Riesenrad. Das riesige Eisenkonstrukt, damals eines der höchsten der Welt, hat bereits 110 Jahre auf dem Buckel.

Il simbolo per eccellenza della città. Un giro costa €9 per adulti e €4 per bambini fino a 15 anni. I cani sono ammessi solo con museruola.

С правой стороны вагона видно центр, слева красивые дома и гора. Можно заказать застолье на колесе.
