During a city walk, it is almost mandatory to experience the Ferris wheel of that city. The Ferris wheel can quickly become a symbol of a city – just think of the London Eye, Europe’s largest Ferris wheel. However, Hungary also abounds in Ferris wheels, which offer stunning views and super images. We will show you the most beautiful Ferris wheels in the country.
Of course, the Hungarian capital also has its own Ferris wheel. The Ferris wheel in the city centre awaits visitors throughout the week. It is possible to buy a priority ticket, the entire area of the wheel is accessible. At the top of the wheel, we can admire the capital of Hungary from a height of 65 metres.
There is a Ferris wheel not only in the capital of Hungary but also in the capital of Lake Balaton. The 50-metre-high, 180-seat building offers a breathtaking view of the “Hungarian Sea”. We can admire the Balaton Uplands or even the Tihany Abbey.
At the other end of Lake Balaton, there is also a Ferris wheel in Keszthely. The building, also 50 metres high, is a popular venue for girls’ requests. On the wheel, which is open Friday-Saturday-Sunday, a 101-year-old aunt was travelling, whose dream came true when she could try this special experience.
We can find a Ferris wheel not only to the west but also to the east of Budapest. In Eger, on Gárdonyi Géza Square, we can see the panorama of the historic city centre from a height of 30 metres.
Not far from Eger, we can also see a Ferris wheel in Miskolc. Until November 1, not only the Ferris wheel but also an entire mini amusement park will be available.
North of the Hungarian capital, along the banks of the Danube, we can find a Ferris wheel in the city of Vác. The tourist attraction, which is open every day of the week, can be visited by locals cheaper.
The 50-metre-high Hungarian-made Ferris wheel offers a unique view of downtown Győr, the Danube, and the church tower.
The Ferris wheel in Szeged started on October 1 and will operate in Szeged until January 6. The 144-seat, 33-metre-high Ferris wheel awaits visitors with open cabins, so the scent of roasted chestnuts and mulled wine takes the experience to the next level.
Before your visit, it is worth getting some information, as their availability may vary depending on the opening hours, the virus situation, and the weather. Enjoy the ride!
