At 100 metres the world's highest wooden tower has reached its final height

Seven months after the demolition of the old tower and six months after the start of construction, building works on top of the 850-metre high Pyramidenkogel mountain in Keutschach (Carinthia, Austria) are rapidly nearing completion.
In recent days, the two highest observation platforms and the "Sky Box" have been assembled at a height of almost 71 metres. With its 18-metre high antenna, the now exactly 100-metre high laminated timber construction ‒ reinforced with ten elliptical steel rings and eighty diagonal braces ‒ is the world’s highest wooden observation tower. The 360-degree panoramic view and the transparent 20-person lift already promise sensational views of the Carinthian mountains and lakes. The old concrete tower, incidentally, had stood at a height of 54 metres.

The base building, which will include a restaurant and shop for visitors, has already been erected around the foot of the tower. The area also includes an extensive outdoor children's play area and disabled parking directly beside the tower. For a more pleasant journey by car or bus, the access road will be reconstructed to remove the last hairpin bend before reaching the Pyramidenkogel mountain.
