Since time immemorial, big wheels are one of the most fascinating constructions worldwide as well as landmarks and rotating viewing platforms at the same time providing visitors astonishing views. In the past, big wheels counted as highly visible guides to major folk festivals. Now, they are part of the skylines of big cities.
In the years 1980 to 2012, the big wheel of Steiger was the largest mobile big wheel in the world with a height of 60 meters and is still known as the largest traveling big wheel with several venues in one season. At the same time, this big wheel is a temporary landmark in many German cities.
In Hamburg, Steiger is present in different locations throughout the year, such as the HafenCity Hamburg or the DOM, Hamburg’s famous fair.
