Budapest Eye will be back in spring 2016! More info coming soon.
Once again, one of the world's largest mobile Ferris wheels comes to Budapest. After a week of assembly work, the giant wheel located in Erzsébet tér opened to the public on April 16th, 2015. It offers fantastic views over Budapest day and night. Standing 65 meters tall, the wheel with its 42 cars is Europe's largest mobile Ferris wheel. It has a capacity of 332 people and at night it will light up the evening sky with over 10,000 colored lights.
Budapest Eye (officially known as Sziget Eye, promoting the famous Sziget Festival) will be open until September 30th. Tickets are HUF 2,400 for adults and HUF 1,500 for kids. Opening hours are 10 am to midnight from Sunday through Thurdsay and 10 am to 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
And here are some photos of the amazing view. The ride takes about 10 minutes.
