Ferris Wheel

It comes only in winter to Duesseldorf and is therefore even something special for us locals: The Ferris Wheel "Wheel of Vision" stands in the old town directly on Burgplatz, framed by the town hall, the Rhine and the Schlossturm. The 42 gondolas are heated, making it a great way to warm up on a cold winter day between a walk at the Rhine and a visit of the christmas markets. From the gondolas you have a good view of the old town and over the Rhine of Oberkassel. Similar to the Rheinturm, the 55 meter high Ferris Wheel offers tourists a great opportunity to gain an initial overview of Duesseldorf. The gondolas accommodate eight people each.

Tip: You can also book exclusive rides, for example for a breakfast cruise. More information is available on the website of the Ferris Wheel.
