The visitor centre at Wurbauerkogel National Park boasts a unique Panorama Tower and the permanent exhibition “Fascinating World of Rocks”.
The tower is handicapped accessible!
Rosenau, home to the National Park of Wurbauerkogel, has a new landmark. The 21 metre tower holds a stunning view of the surrounding mountains - 21 peaks higher than 2,000 metres: Sengsen Mountains, Reichraminger Mountain Range, Totes Gebirge, Warscheneck and Gesäuse.
Some thought the view from Wurbauerkogel was good enough – but see for yourself! The perspective changes as soon as you get to the top of the tower. The single floors feature panorama tables to identify the mountain peaks. Those who are brave enough to venture outside on the top floor can register in the “summit book“
