    From the tower you have a good overview of the gravel islands in the Thur. With a bit of luck (and binoculars or telescope) you will spot kingfishers, great egrets, green thighs, little ringed plovers, sandpipers etc.

    Beautiful lookout tower over the mouth of the Thurm with its beautiful nature. For observations of the animals, it is worthwhile to come in the twilight and take a lot of time and a binoculars. During the day there is usually not much spectacular going on.

    One of several observation towers in the largest floodplain in Switzerland. With a bit of luck you can discover different species of birds (Little Ringed Plover, Golden Oriole, Kingfisher, ...) or beaver from here. It is also exciting how the course of the Thur changes time and again.
