Pyramid Viewpoint (Maribor-Slovenia)
If You want to enjoy the view of the whole city, You can climb this 385 meters high hill, which was once famous for its castle. The castle served for defence against the Hungarians. It was built along the Drava River in the 12th century, at the same time the town got the name Marburg. When the castle was demolished, a stone pyramid was built from its remains. Henrik Brandis also built a chapel to honor the memory of the castle. The chapel was built in a classicist style in the 19th century. It is adorned by a stone monument and a plaque, which tells how the first pyramid was destroyed by a lightning bolt. Before the hill was named Piramida, it held the names ”Mons Castri” and ”der Purgperg”. If You are interested in taking a look to the whole city along with the many vineyards in its surrounding, You should definitely visit this viewpoint. You can’t reach the viewpoint by car. You will have to walk for around 15 minutes from the nearest parking lot, but the walk is worth because of the astonishing view of the Sun setting above Maribor.
