Viewing tower on the pier


Viewing tower on the pier

From the 22 m high viewing tower on the pier, which was erected in the year 2000, you'll have a marvelous view of the town with the castle church, the orchards in the background and a superb panoramic view of Lake Constance and the Swiss and Austrian Alps. A panoramic board newly installed in 2010 on top of the viewpoint tower offers a detailed view of the mountain range across the lake.

The viewing tower, a perpendicular town planning element, combines with its horizontal counterpart - the pierhead roofing, to form one of the most important gateways to the town. The design of the viewing tower makes a direct reference to the classical architectural elements of the port train station. Steel steps lead visitors onto two viewing platforms, from where they have a wonderful view of the town and the lake. The higher platform creates a roof for the lower one, thus protecting it from the elements. There is room for a total of about 100 people on the two platforms.
