A delightful panoramic view of the region

    The Ringkogel part of the Hartbergerland region was already inhabited in prehistoric times and the Kogel was given great importance throughout the course of history. Over the centuries, the Ringkogel with its Ringwarte observation tower has become the landmark of the historical town of Hartberg, which lies at the foot of the Ringkogel. Thanks to the mild climate, you will also find one of Styria’s most northerly wine-growing areas on the hillsides of the Ring. The ideal conditions enable resident winemakers to produce wine and other goods of the highest quality.

    The panorama from the observation tower

    On the Ringkogel itself, part of the Masenberg massif with a height of 789 m, you will find a 30 m high observation tower. 99 steps lead to the top, where you will have a fantastic panoramic view of the Eastern Styrian hill country. The Ringwarte was built by the mayor of the time, Raimund Obendrauf, back in 1906. To mark its 100 year anniversary in 2006, the entire site around the tower was refurbished and a shelter was added.

    Countless hiking trails lead up to the Ringwarte from all corners of Hartbergerland. The paths often lead past other popular excursion destinations, so a hike to the Ringwarte can be turned into an exciting day out.
