For five years now, visitors to the highest official Czech observation tower have been enjoying the view of the surrounding region. A glass observation deck with an accessible walkway is located on the right tower of the boiler room of the new source in the Ledvice coal-fired power plant near Bílina in Teplick. It is accessible to everyone.
Both towers have a supporting function for the boiler room. A special route leads to the elevator, away from production and other operational technologies. After a short training session with a guide, visitors can reach the lookout tower in a group of no more than ten people. No one under the age of six is allowed up, and members of the expedition under the age of 15 are only allowed to go to the lookout accompanied by an adult.
The lookout tower between Bílina, Duchcov and Teplice has been inviting tourists since May 20, 2018. From a height they can see the Bílina mine, as well as other landmarks. Guided tours of the power plant site take place every Saturday from 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and on Thursdays from 4 p.m. Visitors can view the exterior of the operation accompanied by an expert guide. For example, they will learn about small Protur water turbines, which prove that they can produce emission-free energy even in a coal-fired power plant.
In addition to the lookout, the boiler room with mills for crushing coal and the outside view of the cooling tower are also a big attraction. It is necessary to register for the excursion in advance, by phone at 411 102 313, or by e-mail: [email protected]
