The time it self on the wheel was 8-10 minutes, you did go round. About 3-4 times only, is it worth the money yes and no, The views were fantastic but the time on the wheel itself was not worth it . You can get...More

It’s too expensive for such a short trip in the Ferris wheel and there is not a lot to see from the top. I do not find it ok to charge so much for the toilets if they are not clean and they really smell.

As it most of theses attractions, this offers great views of the city. Reasonably priced, friendly staff. Each pod seats approx 4-6 passengers and we had four 'turns'. Early morning is best to avoid queueing.

Pretty interestig to try but the view is not that spectacular. The price is a bit too high in my view. Not a must visit attraction but worth a look if you are in the area.

I would only recommend doing this in the later evening when all the buildings/sights are lit up!!! Also the ‘eye’ is also all lit up, so get a festive atmosphere. Beautiful, but expensive for the 3-4 ‘rotations’. Short queue, but it felt like we waited...More

2700 HUF for 4 cycles, view is nice but not amazing. Easy reachable with public transport, and a amazing restaurant nearby the Steak and Pizza restaurant.

It isn't a very long ride. It hardly stops and thus it doesn't make for a good viewpoint for photos. The evening is better. Personally not worth it for me. Rather walk along the Danube.

Went on the eye to enjoy the view over the city we enjoyed seeing all the land marks only had to wait about 10 minutes before we got on and the wheel went round quite a few times we were on for about 10 minutes

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
