Ride the Budapest Eye

A ride on the Budapest Eye [1051 Budapest, Erzsébet tér] can give you a whole new angle on the city, this giant Ferris wheel was built by 15 people in 8 days!

IMG_5990Located in Erzsebet Square, right smack in the middle of all the downtown action, you are guaranteed excellent panoramic views when you get to the height of the ride.

You are seated in a large enclosed car and the wheel will rotate three full times. You get particularly interesting views of the nearby St. Stephen’s Basilica.
