The Wil Tower is a wooden observation tower which was built in the forest of Wil in Switzerland. The tower site is located some 747 meters above sea level. It was opened for public use on 8 July 2006.ConstructionThe tower is an open structure, rising on 6 slanted columns from three equidistant ground support points. A circular stairway (189 steps) rises in the center of the columns, opening onto a roofed observation deck. Although the structure rises some 34 meters above the ground, the deck is barely above the surrounding trees.The structure is entirely of wood, all obtained from the surrounding forest. The columns are Douglas-fir and the stairway is of Silver fir. The wood was harvested in the early months of 2005 and allowed to dry naturally for a year before construction began.

  • 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!
  • Great views!
  • 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
