The "Jubilaeums-warte" ("Anniversary-vantage-tower") was constructed on occasion of emperor Franz-Josef`s 50th emperorship-anniversary . It has been refurbished and reconstructed after ww2 and offers a nice view over the vast Vienna-Woods and beautiful beechtree-forests.The hike is marked as "City Walk no. 4" and takes you through "Dehne park" and as far as the Jubiläumswarte vantage point. Enjoy stunning views of Schneeberg mountain (weather permitting).
