Absolutely cool slide down the observation tower (built 2013 approx)

It throws you back 15.50 euros BUT worthwhile. The slide is in a pitchblack tube and you are quite accelerated as its a steep ride. The obs tower offers fantastic views... read more

It throws you back 15.50 euros BUT worthwhile. The slide is in a pitchblack tube and you are quite accelerated as its a steep ride. The obs tower offers fantastic views. The main reason to go there is the slide!

The tower has great views of the surrounding area, and has a fun way out - via a slide in the center of the tower! The ride down is a bit turbulent, and not as fast as I would have expected it to be, but still worth doing. They seem to also have other ways down such as free fall... More

Although it was a rainy day, we still managed to enjoy good views from the tower. Adventure seekers will enjoy the zip line, bungee jump or enclosed slide (may be closed in rain) to get down from the tower, but for those who prefer a more sedentary lifestyle there is a lift or stairs! Excellent views from the top in... More

It's a very beautiful building in it self and the views from the top it's amazing. You can either take the elevator or the stairs, I choose the stairs so you could see the landscape change the higher up you got. The views from the top was absolutely amazing, it's well worth a vistit.

Great place. Plan your activity before buying tickets. I.e. If you want to slide down or zip line as it costs you extra. Minimundus not worth, you can skip that.

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 "
