Romantic Riesenrad Feast

You can book a romantic, candle-lit and crystal three-course dinner on one of Vienna's most famous landmarks, its ferris wheel, the Wiener Riesenrad. Around and around you go over the rooftops of Vienna and when the car reaches the ground you are served another course.  On our most recent ride we happened to be in the car next to the dining car and caught a glimpse of one couple's special occasion celebration.  Sweet!


  1. Truly special, isn't it?

    Happy 4th of July, Martha,

  2. Vielen dank, Merisi, and hope you had a happy 4th of July as well, even if it's not a holiday for you.

  3. I've wanted to ride this giant wheel ever since I first saw it in the Orson Wells film The Third Man. Didn't know they did formal dinners also.

    1. It's in much better condition today, as is all of Vienna. Yes, dinner is possible but you first have to fork over a substantial number of Euros....
