After riding my bicycle for 5 minutes on a muddy trail, I came to the 18 meter / 55 feet wooden tower. I climbed it and looked in all directions. Since it was a gray rainy day, the views were not that great.

The so called Mettnau-Turm, (formerly Finckh Turm) is a 18 metres high wooden structure allowing a beautiful view to the Gnadensee and the protected nature conservation area Mettnau. Worth a visit.

It is nice and calm place but regarding the reviews i expected more from this place. It is just a not too big wood tour with a round sight. You can spend here max half an hour.

We could see and hear many birds of the sanctuary, while we could overlook the Lake on both sides of the peninsula of Mettnau. We were lucky to see wild swans, geese, ducks and cormorants.
