Create an itinerary including Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel
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.

  • Very nice view and also stops along the way if you opt for the stairs. Naturally, you can take the elevator, but I would not prefer it on a busy day.

  • Fantastic view and lot of fun for kids. Excellently polite staff and affordable pricing. No parking fee, which was nice 😊 lot of parking places, stairs, lift 😊
  • A nice attraction from which you can admire the beautiful surroundings in good weather. The price is relatively high, but at least you can get a discount for students, for example. The slide was unfortunately not in operation but would have cost more money. The souvenirs were unfortunately also very overpriced. Otherwise, you can sit down in the restaurant and have a good meal at the end.
