    The 30-meter high observation tower is an impressive construction that has three platforms that offer you a wide view of the surroundings.
    The watchtower was designed by Ateliereen and MaMu architects.
    The designers took the inspiration for the look of the watchtower from the sloping lines of the sand dunes in the Sahara. This interplay of lines has led to a remarkable choice of material for the facade: rope. Over 3.5 kilometers in total. Rope has a natural color and appearance, but is at the same time flexible and relatively heavy, so that it will sag. By alternately wrapping the tower tightly and loosely, the characteristic lines of the Sahara are created. When climbing the stairs, the visitor looks through the ropes at the landscape. The tower is freely accessible.

    A really great, high observation deck, which is not only visually a work of art, but also offers a great view of the Lommelse Sahara and the lakes.

    If you want to see Bosland from the air, you can now do so on the brand new lookout tower. With the 144 stairs you reach the top, at a height of 30 meters, which is just a little higher than 15 doors on top of each other!

    The ropes draped around the tower reflect the lines of the dunes in the Sahara. If you would put all the rope behind each other, it would be as long as 30 football fields in a row (about 3.5 km). On the way up, you can still enjoy the view between the ropes, which extends further and further as you go up the stairs.

    Once at the top you can see up to 25 km on a clear day (that's almost 210 football fields!)! Would you like to zoom in on that beautiful view? That is also possible, there is an observation viewer available upstairs.

    You have to experience 'The Highlight' in the Sahara. Step by step and step by step you reach the 30 meter high viewing platform. A wide view, a mosaic of green, yellow and blue spots is your reward at this height limit.

    Beautiful construction of the watchtower. Whoever reaches the top of the tower is rewarded with a beautiful view.
    Not suitable for those who prefer to keep both feet on the ground
