With the Danube region at your feet, the Gobelwarte viewing platform overlooks the charming town of Grein an der Donau and the Strudengau region. The spectacular 360-degree panoramic view promises far-reaching views of the Mühlviertel, Machland and the Alps.

The spectacular steel construction of the Gobelwarte was rebuilt in 2018. At 484 metres above sea level, the 21-metre-high viewing platform offers a fantastic 360-degree panoramic view of the Mühlviertel hills to the north, the Alps to the south, the Machland region to the west and Grein and the Strudengau region to the east.

The Gobelwarte is located directly on the Donausteig long-distance hiking trail and is a wonderful excursion destination.

Architect Claus Pröglhöf from architecture and beyond ZT was entrusted with the planning of the building, which was renovated in 2018. The twisted shape of the supports is intended to evoke the elegance and grace of a dancer. The vibrations that can be felt on the platform are intentional and result from this rotation of the structure.
