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

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