Kaiser's Throne, Pelekas

(480+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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.

  • You can see Corfu town, the old fortress, the see, Albania, the whole island. It is awesome and free entrance. We went to see the sunset as well on the bar that is right next to the Throne but the pla...  more »

  • We were in Pelekas and thought we'd walk up to see Kaiser's Throne. Don't stick to the long winding road, there are some steps behind the shops that will cut a lot of the road walking out. I have to a...  more »

  • Was not so busy there, yet waited quite long for service. When we ordered a chicken salad, took quite some time for them to figure out there was no chicken anymore, so we had to get something else. The tomato mozzarella salad was not really a salad (just the tomato and mozzarella, with bread on the side), but tasty nonetheless. When asking the bill for the salad and two drinks, it was €20! Then suddenly it was €12, and after 5% discount (we had a card) it was €11,50. Numbers isn't their thing. The view of the sea there is great though. It can be quite windy, which is nice when it's warm. The Kaisers Throne lookout definitely is worth going to.
  • Amazing serendipity! Views from the "throne" were spectacular! No one else was there, hotel and patio restaurant 100 feet away on opposite side was like a dream! Fresh fish for the day with potatoes was €10, great milk shakes, very kind gracious staff. I want to come back and stay in the hotel for a week!
  • Fantastic views, great tavern close by. well worth the visit.
  • Beautiful view. If you go by car, sometimes the road is very narrow
  • A view of the entire Corfy island. Really amazing. Quite a heafty climb if using the green bus system.
