You have to walk half an hour before you get there, crossing a forest. Use suitable shoes! Then you have to climb some flights of stairs but finally you can enjoy a splendid view of the entire lake.

We got to the tower after a 3 hours hike around the peninsula, but it can be reached easier, with a shorter hike, too. The view worth the visit, as there is a breathtaking panorama from the top.
