Weiner Riesenrad ferris wheel in Vienna, Austria

The Weiner Riesenrad is the oldest still-operating ferris wheel in the world.

It was originally constructed in 1897 to honor Emperor Franz Josef I’s 50th Jubilee. It’s located in the city’s famous amusement park, Prater, and offers unique views.

At 213-feet high, it may not be one of the tallest ferris wheels in the world, but it’s certainly one of the most historic.
