There’s no place other than the Wuhnleger where you can experience such intensely beautiful views over the UNESCO World Heritage site with the Rosengarten and Vajolettürme towers. The box-seat beside the woodland, with its beautiful little lake reflecting the mountains, boasts incredible, endless views in summer and winter alike, and is the perfect place to stop for a break.
