Kaiser's Throne, Pelekas

Between 1908 and the First World War the German Kaiser, Wilhelm, spent his summers at Achilleion Palace on the east coast of Corfu. His favourite trip was to Pelekas to watch the sunset. Here, an easily accessed observation point offers probably the best panoramic views to be found anywhere in Corfu. This spot, on the rock summit above the village, is still known today as "Kaisers Throne", and from where you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the island spread out below. The best place to watch the magnificent sunset is from the terrace of the nearby Levant Hotel.

Could be combined with Sinarades Folk Museum, Pelekas Costune Museum and Mirtiotissa Monastery.
