7. Paris


There are many big wheels in Paris. The first one was built to celebrate the 1900 universal exhibition and dismantled in 1921.


A more recent large wheel has been installed at « les Tuileries fun fair » since 1993 but only in July and August. You can enjoy another big wheel at Christmas time on the « Place de la Concorde ». Another big one was inaugurated for the UEFA EURO 2016 but is no longer there.


In short, there is often a big wheel to see in Paris especially in July, August or December and certainly near the Place de la Concorde or the Jardin des Tuileries. No doubt that with or without a big wheel, Paris will always be Paris.
