Over the past few years this tower has been extensively modernized and improved. There are three levels of the upper section. Also there are several telescopes, which on a clear day allow one to see perhaps 30 or 40 kilometers. You travel to the lower deck of the lookout section by lift (Aufzug) and then to the upper decks by... More

The view is something to behold, one can see for many, many kilometres including to the highest mountain in Austria, the Grossglockner. And the new tower!!! What a structure, an engineering marvel to say the least. It is constructed of laminated wood and steel. But it is twisting and turning, see photo. The slide is, I believe either the highest,...

Plenty of parking areas are available along the approach road to the Pyramidekogel. We were lucky to find the last free space in the parking lot directly at the foot of the tower. Parking is free of charge. An admission fee to the Pyramidekogel is levied; entrance is free with the Kärnten Card. A fast elevator takes the guests to... More

With rain in the Salzburger region we did a little research on the Internet and came up with a plan to visit the pyramid. Leaving the rain behind we were soon heading up the wooden structure via the viewing platforms to the top. Views were stunning and we got an all round amazing view. There is an elevator for those...

The new tower, finished in 2013, is built of wood and steel, and at a height of 100 metres it is the tallest wooden observation tower in the world. Though there was a lot of people, we only had to wait a couple of minutes to get the lift and we really enjoyed the view of Carinthia and its impressive... More

Well it's made out of wood it's very tall it's got the longest European helter-skelter and if you don't like heights it's not the place for you as I found out, but the helter-skelter is a great way to come down very fast. For the more loony of you, there is a zip wire too. Now you have to be... More
