In 1893, on the Bachtel mountain was built an observation tower of steel which was declared in 1979 by the government of the canton of Zürich as an object of historic preservation. Six years later, the tower was stored, and in 1992, the Pfannenstiel Aussichtsturm was rebuilt on Pfannenstiel mountain. The new location for the reconstruction was initially controversial: The cantonal authorities preferred the highest elevation on the mountain in the middle of forested area. The exucutive of the municipality of Meilen was not satisfied as it is a protected area. The final location is somewhat below located in the municipality of Egg (Switzerland).
