Kaiser’s Observatory, which was named after the emperor of Germany Wilhelm II, also known as Kaiser, is situated at the top of Pelekas hill, at an altitude of 270 meters and on a platform modulated on the rock. When he was on holiday in Corfu and the Achillion, he used to come to this place in order to gaze from the top of the hill, while enjoying the sunset.
The view from Kaiser’s Observatory is panoramic, towards the inland of the island and towards the Ionian Sea where, you can see the sun disappear into the sea, painting the horizon with the colors of the sunset. From this point you can look through binoculars and also admire the neighboring beaches of Kontogialos and Glyfada.
Below Kaiser’s Observatory operates a snack bar and there is also a parking space for many cars.
