Amazing city!!! Beautiful buildings... The only thing I didnīt like too much was the underground "up the ground" . The rest was reeeealy nice.

Well Berlin already has two observation towers.
But I aggree about the circus environment. It looks a bit dominating, Especially since Berlin doesnt have a large number of scrapers.

Unfortunately I just can post the latest News in German:

Official website of the Great Wheel Corporation:

I think, it's a wonderful idea! :-)

Looks cool and will be a candy for tourists

Obviusly the views are going to be amazing... If you already have two observation towers, on of them in the middle of the city with amazing views (DO NOT GO AT NIGHT, THE CEILING OF THE OBSERVATOR IN WITHe AND REFLEX IN THE WINDOWS SO YOU CANīT SEE!!!! THEY SHOULD PUT BLACK CEILINIG!!!!!) I think that are enough towers for the same purpose.

Berlin is a sophisticated beautiful City ,It doesn't need this kind of Disneyland's wheel in the middle of the City, and you are right , this wheel belongs to the octoberfest

I think it will look great. The London Eye doesn't look "disneyland" at all and neither will this. They are extremely elegant, light, and minimalist features on the skyline - and breathtaking at night.
