Nice 360 view. Well worth the stairs up. Great place to see the beauty of this area. Mountain views, lake views, city views. Also can see three countries basically, Bregenz Austria, Germany and Switzerland

We went up the tower over the stairs covering 9 floors before arriving on the top of this tower. It gives a nice view over the Lake Constance, the harbour and the seafront. Nice when the ferry boats go in and out and with it's...More
