Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel, Keutschach am See

#3 of 362 in Things to do in Carinthia
Observation Deck · Tourist Spot
Overlooking the turquoise blue lakes, rolling green hills, and Alpine peaks in the distance stands Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel, an observation tower 847 m (2,779 ft) tall. The unusual structure originated in 1950, but later evolved to its current state, made of wood and steel. Hard to miss, the tower's corkscrew design appears a bit wobbly and is topped by three observation platforms at varying heights. Ascend by spiral staircase or glass elevator to any of the three platforms. The interior of the tower features a tube slide, so grab a potato sack and slide on down to the bottom. There, you'll find a full restaurant where you can refuel.

  • The most scary tower I’ve ever been!! Looking down is breathtaking. Very fun experience with the slide down and only 4€. Somewhere we read that it’s 10€.
  • The view is breathtaking! You can see all of the lake, the town and the hills nearby. You can either use an elevator or stairs to climb to the top. To get down you have more options, like a giant slide and a zip line. Even thou it might be a bit expensive for an observation tower the view is wort it.
