This is a must, no doubt! Everything is already told in the other reviews, so I would just like to point out that you should consider the time when to visit. The place can be very busy, so maybe is better to go during off-peak hours, especially if you want to go down by slide (the queue can be very... More

A recent newcomer to the sights in the vicinity of Klagenfurt Austria. Really a must see architectural wonder: the highest (around 80 meters) wooden structure, reminding you of a twirling dervish, perched on top top the highest mountain in the surroundings. When you mount the structure (there is an elevator) you appear to be flying when you hit the top... More

We stopped here for a few hours this summer. Take the stairs and climb to the top of Europe's tallest helter-skelter! The views from the top across Worthersee and Klagenfurt are amazing. Of course you can take the lift to the top but this is the soft option! For the descent you can either walk down or catch the lift.... More

We took a boat ride across the lake to Maria Wörth and on to the Pyramidenkogel what a beautiful structure and stunning views. Now in my early 70's I declined the invitation to take the slide down, but it did look like a brilliant ride so if you are fit "do it "

Great tourist destination. On a good day you can see into the future. And you must take the slide down, or you have seven years of bad hair days!

It was a must see place whenever we had friends and colleagues coming to Austria and Alps. We visited again recently and found it more fun than before. It is much higher and we could easily see Klangenfurt! We tried the slide, it was adventural and exciting!

This lookout tower is a must and is a great way to catch. Breathtaking views of Worthersee. Lakes, forests and even views of the nearby mountains of Slovenia can be seen from the top. Ontop of that lift access to the top is available for those less skin to climbing stairs and attractions such as a zip line and slide... More

This is a "must do" place. Quite a challenge to get there as it is somewhat in the middle of nowhere but it is well worth it. The tower can be ascended either on foot of by lift. We lazily took the lift up and the stairs back down. The views from the top are stunning and you definitely want... More

Great way to see Worthersee and the surrounding area. The views stretch all around and you can even see the peaks of nearby Slovenia. Quite accessible although the car park is quite a considerable walk from the main attraction, taking into consideration the gradient. A lot of stairs as well, but don't let this put you off as the view... More

The view from the tower is very wide view and beautiful You can take the elevator and it is also possible to climb the stairs. I climbed the stairs and it was very easy. I went down the slide tower. The decline slide costs 4 euros and its worth the money!!! I enjoyed it so much, don’t miss it (Very... More
