Today we went to the "big wheel", the "Bellevue Riesenrad" at Essen centre. It was really expensive, 4,50 per person, but I would say it was worth it. The day was clear, the sun was slowly going down, and the wheel was really big! That means we could really see far away!
It's amazing how here, in the middle of Ruhrpott, you see city landscape everywhere: industry, buildings, and little strips of forest. You can clearly see that millions of people live in this area. But it's still beautiful.
In the first photo you can see the Essen Rathaus (City hall) and the wheel, the second picture is an impression of the city.
That must have been a really big wheel, you could see for miles! A bit too high up for me though.
True, it was huge! But not wobbly at all, very stable, so I didn't worry too much :)
