Caption

The Wienerwald is a forest area west of Vienna, Austria. Already in 1898 a lookout tower had been erected, together with an adjecent shelter house. This first tower burned down in 1927 due to the stroke of a lightning and another tower was built on the spot. When that one burned down in 1946, again caused by a lightning, only the shelter house was left for decades, extended to serve as an inn in 1954. In 2004 a new lookout tower was erected with a height of 22,5 m, offering a magnificent view. It is recommended not to cheat: first warming up at the tower, then cooling down at the inn :-)
