Photographer's Note

The Wiener Riesenrad (German for "Viennese giant wheel"), or Riesenrad, is a 64.75-metre (212 ft) tall Ferris wheel at the entrance of the Prater amusement park in Leopoldstadt, the 2nd district of Austria's capital Vienna. It is now one of Vienna's most popular tourist attractions, and symbolises the district as well as the city for many people.
Erected in 1897 to celebrate Emperor Franz Josef I's golden Jubilee, it is one of the earliest Ferris Wheels of the world.
Not as tall as London Eye, still interesting with its restaurant cabins.

Wiener Riesenrad (Almanca "Viyana dev tekerlek"), ya da sadece Riesenrad, Avusturya'nın başkenti Viyana'nın 2. bölgesi Leopoldstadt içindeki Prater eğlence parkının girişinde 64.75 metre (212 ft) yüksekliğinde tarihi bir dönme dolaptır. Şimdi Viyana'nın en popüler turistik yerlerinden ve şehrin simgelerinden biridir.
1897 yılında imparator Franz Josef I tarafından yaptırılmıştır, ve dünyanın ilk dönme dolaplarındandır.
London Eye kadar büyük ve ihtişamlı olmamakla beraber, özellikle yemekli kabinleriyle ilgi çekici bir atraksiyon..
