And German descriptions and photos here:
Der Turm auf dem Ulmizberg lässt von der Haltstelle Schliern aus zu Fuss gemütlich in circa einer Stunde erreichen. Man kann zwar normalerweise nicht auf das Dach des Turms, aber auch von der etwas tiefer gelegenen Besucherplattform hat man eine sehr schöne Aussicht und für die Pause stehen eine Brätlistelle, Brunnen und Toilette zur Verfügung.
