Special features

The special feature of this viewing platform is the width of the block laminated beam of 3,80 m, realized with displacement. The grooved surface is made of European larch wood with weatherproofed characteristics. The wooden structure of this glulam-platform is covered on the upper side and protected against weather impact. It is supported by V-shaped steel profiles on concrete-abutment. The platform was constructed on an overhanging beam in curved form. Standing on it, you have the impression to hover over the Rhine valley.
