Lookout tower Liberecká výšina

Liberecká výšina lookout tower was built between 1900 - 1901. It was built by Baron Henry of Liebieg according to the plans of a Nuremberg architect professor Josef Schmitz. He wanted to emphasise the antique look of the tower as a medieval castle. That is why he used construction techniques of the Middle Ages. He also used old building stones from the St. Sebald church in Nuremberg dating back to the 13th century. This helped him to achieve the appearance of a medieval knight's castle. Even roof tiles were taken from old Nuremberg's houses. For many years, the lookout tower has been a favourite destination for tourists and people from Liberec. During the sixties of the 20th century, the building underwent reconstruction, during which valuable building elements and chamfering were destroyed. In the 90's of the 20th century, the building was closed due to poor technical conditions. It remained closed until 2012 when it reopened after 15 years thanks to European funds. Now it serves the public again. In addition to the 25 meters, high lookout tower you will find here a restaurant, accommodation and wellness services. Various events are held regularly here. In the summer, you may walk from our apartments to see the tower. The trip will take you no more than 1 hour (a slow walk), or you may use our electric bikes. In winter, you may take cross-country skis and follow the trail to get here.

Opening hours and admission:
The Liberecká výšina lookout tower is open from Monday to Thursday and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Admission is CZK 30.00 for adults and CZK 10.00 for children (+ your free choice of a wonderful view).
