Landscape from the Belvédère
The belvédère lays on a concrete base of 150 cubic metres. It has eight floors supported by 4 pillars made of glued laminated timber, ringed with iron for a total height of 31.60 meters (385 m heigh, so, 180 meters over the river).The last platform is 36 square meters and we reach it by climbing 161 stairs; from there, we can discover an exceptional landscape of several square kilometers.
The architect worked in partnership with the waters and forestry division, and he thought big in prevision of the spruces that are in the nearby estace in the north, as they can easily reach the height of 30 meters. Now, after the dryness periods in the years 70, when the forest subished several fires, the authorities think about using the belvédère as a watch tower as in the Upper Fagnes
