The Giant Ferris Wheel after Sunrise
Das Riesenrad im Wiener Prater

Das Riesenrad
The Giant Ferris Wheel was opened in 1897 in Vienna's Prater park,
to celebrate the 50th jubilee of Emperor Frances Joseph I

"The Riesenrad famously appeared in the 1949 post-war film noir The Third Man,
and also featured in the 1973 spy thriller Scorpio, and the 1987 James Bond film, The Living Daylights.
It also appears in The Star of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson, Max Ophüls' Letter from an Unknown Woman, and its
Generation X counterpart, Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise, and The Glass Room by Simon Mawer."

  2. Merisi, your brilliant photograph has now got The Third Man theme song playing in my head, interspersed with several favorite Prince tunes.


  3. Interesting! It's quite the movie star!

  4. Looks like its legendary ferris wheel
