For connoisseurs: The Willenborg ferris wheel at the "Summer in the city"
The 45 meter high Willenborg ferris wheel at Königsplatz is so brand new that Munich's Mayor Dieter Reiter inaugurated it with a watering can and Munich rainwater at the start of the "Summer in the City" event on July 24, 2020. You can ride it until Sunday, October 4 (which would have been the last day of the Oktoberfest 2020). Note: You don't have to queue as long as you used to, at the Oktoberfest.
Don't forget your cell phone or camera. The Ferris wheel is as popular with photographers as the one usually at Theresienwiese - and probably the most popular motif of the "Summer in the city". It also looks great, as it stands right in the middle in front of the Propylaeum and dips it into changing colors from dusk onwards. More beautiful and so far unique is the view from above, over the "Kunstareal" (art quarter) with its famous museums and Munich's city center.
A second Willenborg Ferris wheel is located in front of the Olympic Stadium on Coubertinplatz.
Riding times at Königsplatz: Monday to Wednesday 12 to 22 o'clock, Thursday and Friday 12 to 22:30 o'clock, Saturday 11 to 22:30 o'clock, Sunday 11 to 22 o'clock
