Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel, Keutschach am See

4.7
Overlooking the turquoise blue lakes, rolling green hills, and Alpine peaks in the distance stands Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel, an observation tower 847 m (2,779 ft) tall. The unusual structure originated in 1950, but later evolved to its current state, made of wood and steel. Hard to miss, the tower's corkscrew design appears a bit wobbly and is topped by three observation platforms at varying heights. Ascend by spiral staircase or glass elevator to any of the three platforms. The interior of the tower features a tube slide, so grab a potato sack and slide on down to the bottom. There, you'll find a full restaurant where you can refuel.

  • We visited the pyramid overview in February and the elevator had not been repaired since the summer of 2017. Seen the price of 14 euros between ascent on foot and slide is a bit overpriced. Ample parking under the pyramid. Around the pyramid wc and a café in addition to the shopper. The 71-meter wooden tower offers a splendid view of cmq on a sunny day on the Lakes, klagenfurt and all surrounding mountains. The effort of the climb of more than 400 steps, stopping between various plots with information boards repays the effort. We were lucky with the sunny day is in seeing the mountains and Lakes still covered by snow. The descent into the chute of over 120 metres, with the mat is definitely a fun experience for children and even to scream for many adults. Only to the shopper and the ticket point speak some English. The slide even though they speak in German you do understand. Staff courteous and helpful.

  • I wanted high but once again after a lightning strike the lift didn't work and I was too lazy to walk, I was still not up. Why does always the elevator to be at my broken: (but nunmal so the Flash is looking for is always the highest point.) I think for just that there is too little parking.

  • Great view point. You can see the entire Wörthersee and a lot of Karawanken. Costs around 10€ per person. Is made almost entirely out of here making it quite unique. Also has a slide you can take from the top all the way down for an extra small fee. Nothing special however. Definitely recommendable to visit on a sunny day.
  • Perfect place!! 1 hour spent, truly amazing experience :) The entire lake is visible and Klagenfurt and the Alps and everything :) And the slide down is GREAT !! You can get your photo from the slide for only 3 €!! Wonderful souvenir :))))
  • Beautiful place, from above you can see all the lake. At the top the wind is quite strong and in winter time it is better to have beanie hat and scarf to protect yourself.
  • Fantastic architecture, amazing view, and you can slide down from the top :)
  • Magnificent views over the Wörthersee at a total height of around 900m above sea level (incl approximately 65 meter tower height = level 12). All levels will take a total of 458 stairs. Elevator will go to level 10. Last two levels (upper decks) per stairway only. Level 10 is completely shielded by windows. All other levels are open air. Impressive wood and steel construction. If you are around, you absolutely need to visit this superb attraction.
