A special experience for adults and children in the “quiet time of the year”: Under the world’s highest wooden observation tower, the municipality of Keutschach am See invites you to the popular Advent market with an interesting program. At 920 m above sea level, visitors can expect a unique panoramic view of the Carinthian lakes and landscape. The viewing platform can be reached comfortably with the panorama lift or a little sportier over the stairs.
