The impressive spiral lookout tower on the island of Zealand in Denmark

About 60 kilometers from Copenhagen, the Danish capital, is Haslev in the Gisselfeld Klosters Skove forest. This is a private forest that is open to the public every day until sunset.

Its owners wanted to create a lookout tower that would allow visitors to contemplate the unusual, for the area, mountainous landscape with abundant wetlands, cliffs, streams and lakes.

The EFFEKT company found a rather spectacular solution to create such an attraction without spoiling the forest, by creating an almost 45-meter-high observation tower that visitors can walk through while immersing themselves in Danish nature.

The unique spiral structure, whose shape is hyperboloidallows you to climb to the top of the viewpoint in an easy way, and enjoy the impressive 360-degree views, not suitable for those who suffer from vertigo.

In addition, the tower is connected to a forest walkway about a kilometer long that connects with Camp Adventure, the visitor reception center.

The structure is made of steel, with oak wood for the boards of the ramp and large vertical tubes also made of steel.

The tower is open daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. It takes about 2 hours (according to Camp Adventure estimates) to complete the trek to the top and return to the base through the 650 meter ramp distributed in 12 circles.

The top is 135 meters above sea level, and is the highest point on the Danish island of Zealand.

From it you can see more than 25 kilometers away, including on clear days the Øresund Bridge, which connects Copenhagen with the Swedish city of Malmö, and Copenhagen itself.
