All in all it is nice. They need to reduce a price a bit or renew the glass of the cabins. Some safety information were unreadable, also needs renovation.

We went up there to flee from the hot temperatues down at the lake. On the top great 360° view, apparently THE place for flex-wing flyers. We enjoyed the climbing park at the mid-station with many flying foxes.
