This is a recently renovated tower for great views over the beautiful Worthersee. You can go up taking the stairs, and the children and adults too (if they dare...) can take the slide down. The view is really great and the slide a really great for the children, can recommend this for any family.

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...
