Baku Ferris Wheel (Baku Eye) Tours and Activities

Baku Ferris Wheel (Baku Eye)
Boasting a prime location on a boulevard overlooking the Caspian Sea, the Baku Ferris Wheel (Baku Eye) offers panoramic views of the city and its coastal surroundings. The wheel was originally built for the Eurovision Song Contest, which Azerbaijan hosted in 2012, and has since become one of the city’s most visible attractions.

The Basics

The Baku Ferris Wheel has 30 cabins which each fit eight people, and it rotates at a leisurely pace. Cabins are usually shared between multiple groups, but you can also pre-book a private experience. Once onboard, sit back and take in great views of Baku’s top attractions, including Fountain Square, Baku Old City, and the Heydar Aliyev Center. The illuminated wheel is also a feature of most evening city tours.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Baku Ferris Wheel provides a great way to orient yourself in the sprawling city of Baku.
  • Pre-book tickets online to avoid waiting or to reserve a private cabin.
  • The wheel’s cabins are air-conditioned and wheelchair-accessible.
  • One rotation of the wheel takes about 30 minutes.

How to Get There
The ferris wheel is about a 20-minute walk along the waterfront from Baku Old City and can be reached on the 5, 6, 88, and 125 buses. The most convenient way to visit the Ferris Wheel is as part of a sightseeing tour that includes round-trip transfers from your hotel.

When to Get There
The Baku Ferris Wheel is open daily from noon until late at night. Sunset rides offer particularly stunning views and photo opportunities.

The Best of Baku 

As the capital city of Azerbaijan, Baku boasts a wealth of attractions. After getting a birds eye view on the ferris wheel, visit the historic Old City, which is surrounded by ancient walls that date back to the 12th century; the restored Palace of the Shirvanshahs; and the super-sleek Heydar Aliyev Center, which houses a museum dedicated to Baku’s history.
