A spectacular panorama viewing platform the so-called Jubiläumswarte at the Gloriette in Eisenstadt in Burgenland was opened officially at the weekend.
The new platform was built because the old one was no longer serviceable and needed to be replaced.
The new 16-meter-high construction was put up in record time and is made entirely of wood, and gives an impressive view of the surrounding Wulkaebene as well as the Neusiedlersee. The construction was also built to allow access to elderly or disabled people who can drive to the location by car and then reach the first floor of the platform easily.
The work went ahead after the Association the Friends of the Eisenstadt Castle Parks managed to raise the necessary 300,000 together with the local branch of the Raiffeisen.
