Float on Cloud Nine this weekend with a free ride in Emma’s dedicated sleep capsule on the Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel, available from today until Sunday.

In the lovingly decorated capsule of Emma – The Sleep Company, riders will quickly start dreaming in bed with a view over Vienna, under a canopy of fairy lights, cotton wool clouds and dream catchers. With the Cloud Nine experience, Emma is transforming the idea of dreaming in fluffy clouds into a reality — and all visitors are welcome to experience it for themselves.

To be among the first to dream of Cloud Nine in the Emma Capsule, numerous visitors arrived at the Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel in the Prater as early as 9:00 am local time. Kathi D. took part in the first round and was thrilled: “A ride on the Ferris wheel is always a special experience at this time of year. Having a view of the festively decorated Prater while floating on Cloud Nine was an extraordinary experience.”

If you haven’t taken a ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel, you haven’t really been to Vienna at all!

Experience a ride on the famous Vienna Giant Ferris WheeI, a landmark of the Austrian capital and a symbol for the world-famous Wiener Prater. With its iconic silhouette, the Giant Ferris WheeI is a must-see attraction for all visitors to Vienna. A ride on the Wheel is just as important to a visit to Vienna as the Schönbrunn Palace, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, or the Spanish Riding School. A ride on this significant and fascinating structure provides spectacular views over the whole city. The Giant Ferris WheeI is a true cultural and architectural highlight for any guest in the city: you haven’t really visited Vienna until you’ve taken a ride on the Giant Ferris WheeI and marveled at the breathtaking views over the roofs of Vienna!

The Vienna Giant Ferris WheeI rotates at a speed of 2.7 kilometers per hour. A complete rotation takes just over 4 minutes, but only when the Ferris wheel has not stopped to let passengers on or off. More commonly, a ride takes between 12 and 15 minutes, during which time you can enjoy picturesque views over Vienna and the surrounding area, such as the hills of the Vienna Woods, the Danube, the Marchfeld, and the Pannonian Basin.
