Lookout tower U Zámečku - Lovosice

A 7.3 metre high tower with a 4 metre high gallery was built on an artificial hill where ice was stored in the past to cool beer in a nearby restaurant. The structure, made up of 40 to 12 metre high hyperboloid-shaped poles, is anchored to a reinforced concrete platform.

Lookout tower U Zámečku - Lovosice

Near the Café Zámeček and the ferry (over the Elbe River to Píšt'any) there is a beautiful viewpoint. It is located on the site of the original wooden gazebo, which was built by the Schwarzenberg family in 1865, together with a restaurant. The lookout stands on an artificially created hill, which consists of a buried two-storey building originally used as a beer cellar and ice house for the needs of the cruise restaurant.

In the spring of 2019, the Raeder&Falge company, together with architect Luboš Hruska, built it here. Instead of the original gazebo upstairs, the architect designed a wooden lookout with a steel staircase and a canvas roof visible from afar. The view from the site is not only of the river, but also of the Porta Bohemica and Radobýl.

Tourist and historical cards from Wander Book are available for purchase in the café.
