Der Wilerturm ist definitiv einen Besuch wert, auch wenn man nur kurz in Wil verweilt. Die Aussicht ist zu jeder Tageszeit unbezahlbar, aber vor allem in der "Golden Hour" nimmt sie einem den Atem weg... more »The Wilerturm a visit is definitely worth, even if it just lingers in wil. The views are priceless at any time, but especially in the "golden hour" she takes a breath away.
Great place to walk and have a good view! The Turm itself is "an attraction" with the names on it and high rounded stairs!
The platform on the top of Wiler Turm gives a good panoramic view of the city of Wil and its neighbouring areas. The scenic views along the journey to this tower makes the trip very worthwhile.
Lovely trip, great views from a wooden structure.
Awesome view on a hill in the middle of the woods
