One of the Highest Ferris Wheels in Europe – Try It Out!


After its great success from 2013, this year the ferris wheel is rotating again over the center of Budapest until September. The 65 meter high wheel is located on the Erzsébet tér (square), within a 5 minute walking distance from our apartments. The wheel which works with the latest technology doesn’t make a noise and has 42 closed cabins. The iron structure was built in 8 days.

Journey time is around 10 minutes. Admission for adults HUF 2,400 (about € 8), children (under 140 cm in height) HUF 1,500 (approx. € 5), family ticket (two adults, two children) 6600 HUF (about € 22).

I took this photo from one of the windows of the local government’s office on Elizabeth square / Erzsébet tér. The clerks there were kind enough to let me into their office for a shot.
