From there you can see parts of the Markelfinger in the north, the Zeller Lake, Gnaden Lake and the Untersee to the south. In good weather, the tower also offers wider panoramic views of the Hegau, the island of Reichenau and Switzerland with the Thurgau Seerücken, Swiss Alps and the Säntis Mountain. Boards provide information about the Mettnau nature reserve.
The Mettnau Nature Reserve is accessible year-round up to the Mettnau Tower. The path to the end of the peninsula is normally open to walkers, August 31 - April 15. The period varies according to the bird breeding season.
