The Fourth Wall – Seekopf Lookout Tower

The Seekopf and the Hirschwand belong to the World Heritage Trail and together form a popular excursion destination that is highly rated by hikers. A lookout tower affords a phenomenal 360-degree view. The existing tower is already over 25 years old and is showing signs of rotting, so will soon have to be demolished for safety reasons.
