A magnificent mountain backdrop awaits you from the panorama tower on the Wurbauerkogel in the Pyhrn-Priel vacation region. No fewer than 21 two-thousand-metre peaks can be seen on the adventure mountain in good visibility. The names of the surrounding peaks can be read on the panorama panels on the various floors. At the top of the viewing platform, you can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view. This ranges from the Sengsengebirge to the Reichraminger Hintergebirge and the Haller Mauern, the Warscheneck and the Totes Gebirge. You can also see the striking Kleiner Buchstein in the Gesäuse National Park!

You can experience non-stop wow moments from a new perspective at the glass tower in Windischgarsten.

Fascination of rock" exhibition

Knowledge to take away at the panorama tower

The glass panorama tower on Wurbauerkogel is 21 meters high and extends over six floors. It not only offers spectacular views of the surrounding Upper Austrian mountain panorama, but also houses an interesting exhibition. In the "Fascination of Rock" exhibition, visitors of all ages can learn all about the local mountain world and the flora and fauna adapted to the conditions. On 150 square meters, extraordinary, remarkable and world-class achievements from the animal and plant world are presented to visitors. Translated with DeepL.com (free version)
