Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel, Keutschach am See
(4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel part of your personalized Keutschach am See itinerary using our Keutschach am See holiday planner.

  • I have been with family to see this tower and enjoy from the top a great view of the Carinthia and lakes. We were lucky because the weather was fine, the air so we could admire a wonderful landscape to 360°. The Council absolutely if it is over there (Lake Worthersee).

  • A sight not to be missed, if you stay in Carinthia. A great building.

  • ample parking, a short, steep walk, and one is in the lookout; with the lift upwards and with the slide down (who wants to), simply a great experience

  • There is a slide on the inside of the Pyramidenkogel. It is worth to spend the 7 Euro for a slide. Items in the giftshop are surprisingly cheap compared to other tourist locations. The staff is friendly, very polite and actually fun. If you are in a joking mood, they are not shy to join in and make you have a very enjoyable and fun time. The top platform is a bit windy, but the vista is worth all the effort. And if you are lazy, there is an elevator taking you to the third platform from the top.
  • For the people in good condition. Happens the elevator didn't work so was even more interesting to move ass up ☺
  • Wonderful place.. very interesting tower and the view up is unbelievable.. totally worth it!
  • Best thing I saw in Europe... unreal beauty. Can't belive I didn't read about it but only stumbled upon it as we were driving from Vienna to Venice.
