Easy leisurely walk from Bruneck/Brunico to "Kaiserwarte" and Reischach/Riscone.

Around 1903, on the highest point of "Kühbergl/Monte Spalliera", it was built a 18 meters high observation tower that allowed the Emperor Franz Joseph I to observe the artillery movements in Brunico and surroundings. This tower and the hill on which it stood were named "Kaiserwarte". Later the tower became a popular scenic spot, but over the years it suffered natural damages and in 1950 it was dismantled for safety reasons. Currently still remained only a kind of stone column.
