Kaiser's Throne, Pelekas

4.6
#1 of 7 in Nature in Corfu
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.

  • In my opinion it is one from "must see" list. Breath taking view. Easy access to the top of the hill. Nearby village - pelekas is also awesome.  more »
  • The layout of the site is original with its platform overlooking the cliff. Nothing that is worth a visit. The view is very nice and the (false?) ruins participate in the charm of the place. Crossing the village frankly galley by car. Possibility to park at the top. Attention to young children: keep body correspond to standards of security from another time.

  • 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
  • Easy to reach and the best place to watch the sunset.
