We hiked up to the tower from Plaschischen. It takes you a little more than 90mins to get up and a little less to walk down. The view is spectacular from the tower and a great fun is to slide down in the tube

We first saw the Pyramidkogel as it was right across Worthersee and we saw it from our hotel balcony. We took the elevator up and our breath was taken away by the 360 degrees panoramic view. The only thing missing at the top was signs stating what we were seeing.

I visited the Pyramidenkogel with my wife. From a distance its impressive. As you stand underneath it and look up, it is simply a feat of modern, wooden engineering. It takes your breath away in more ways than one! There's a choice to ascend the structure, either by glass lift or by the stairs. We chose the stairs and were... More

A great view at the beautiful mountains of austria! Also the road to the tower is very nice to ride! Too bad the long slide inside the tower costs extra money! Free to use when you have a karntencard.

Once you get up there, Carinthia is on your palm; beautiful Wörthersee, mountains, Keutschach lake and Klagenfurt... I would recommend going up by stairs and DEFINITELY sliding back down because it is breathtaking. Not cheep at all but amazing experience.

Firstly, if you are doing the touristy thing in the area, it is worth looking at the Kaernten Card as it would give you free/discounted entry to loads of great places such as the Pyramidenkogel (and some less great!). The day we visited the lift wasn't working which was good in a away as we savoured the view on the... More

This was well worth the price and the ride up the windy road in our awful rental car. The structure itself is quite amazing and the views were breathtaking. A true highlight of our trip. Next time, I will slide down.

After years of going back and forth, the old tower was finally torn down and a new one built in its place. Fantastic construction, well worth a visit.

Very good overview - elevator brings you up. Unfortunately were no orientation signs fixed by now. The restaurant Genusswelt at the entrance is very recommandable.

Honestly- who would have thought there would truly be a helter-skelter this long, and this high up? I suspected a joke .Well worth the effort and price; but be prepared later to see people looking at you oddly - that goofy smile won't leave your face for days. And the views are not bad, neither are the refreshments and toilets.... More
