Kaiser's Throne, Pelekas

(4.6/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Though famed for its historical connection to Kaiser Wilhelm II, it's the breathtaking views that draw visitors to Kaiser's Throne. This rocky vantage point features an observation platform where permanent binoculars let you take in the sights. Deep blue skies meet the lush valley below, dotted by colorful country houses. In the distance, the horizon extends to Italy and Albania. A scenic cobblestone walk past yellow country houses will bring to you to the top of the hill. Be aware, however, that the walk up is quite steep, so search out a shuttle bus if that poses a problem. Note the crowds tend to come at sunrise or sunset. Add Kaiser's Throne to your Pelekas travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Pelekas travel itinerary planner.

  • The view is beautiful. One imagines how Emperor Joseph stood up here and followed the sea or the wild. If you look to the East but very carefully, you can see the Achilleon. I think with a good pair of binoculars he could have seen his wife in the garden of the Achilleons.

  • The car took us a long road uphill through the charming small village of Pelekas, taking us on a typical greek outback experience. Well at the top one could see all the way to the greek mainland and j...  more »

  • A view of the entire Corfy island. Really amazing. Quite a heafty climb if using the green bus system.
  • Located just a few hundred metres from Pelecas village, absolutly stunning coast to coast views from the top. Only 30 mins bus ride from Cofu town and well worth it
  • Unrivalled view of Corfu Old Town and the surroundings. The sunset cafe looks decent but wasn't the time for sunset yet. An ideal plan would have been to visit just before sunset.
  • Amazing views around Corfu, including mainland Greece and Albania both visible. Easily accessible by car, only a short walk from the car park at the top.
  • Great view, worth checking out
