Christkindle's Ferris Wheel

The original Ferris Wheel was designed and constructed by George W. G. Ferris, for the 1893 World's Exposition in Chicago. The term Ferris wheel later came to be used. Over here in Germany we call it: Riesenrad = Giant's wheel. This huge over dimensioned one is seen in our cute little town over here in Germany on our Christkindle's Market. It is much, much higher than our houses in the town's center seen in the background.

The fare is 3 Euros, app. 5 USD for the 5 min. ride, but worth every EuroCent.
