Viewpoint tower on the pier
From the 22 m high Viewing Tower on the pier, which was erected in the year 2000, you'll have a marvelous view of the town with the castle church, the orchards in the background and a superb panoramic view of Lake Constance and the Swiss and Austrian Alps. A panoramic board on top of the Viewpoint Tower offers a detailed view of the mountain range across the lake. The Viewing Tower, a perpendicular town planning element, combines with its horizontal counterpart - the pierhead roofing, to form one of the most important gateways to the town. The design of the Viewing Tower makes a direct reference to the classical architectural elements of the port train station. Steel steps lead visitors onto two viewing platforms, from where they have a wonderful view of the town and the lake. The higher platform creates a roof for the lower one, thus protecting it from the elements. There is room for a total of about 100 people on the two platforms.
