Größter Klapotetz

The largest Klapotetz in the world is 17 m high and stands on the Demmerkogel in the municipal area of St. Andrä-Höch. After the world's Klapotetz collapsed in a storm in 2017, Manfred Perl was commissioned to erect a new Klapotetz at the same location on Demmerkogel.

Hardfacts:

  • Total height: 17 m
  • Weight: 7 tons
  • Diameter windmill: 14,01 m

The Klapotetz is made of 5 different types of wood. The wings are made of larch, the trunk and the frame of oak, the striking mechanism of acacia, the sound board of bird cherry and the broom of chestnut with birch bushes.

Along the hiking routes Neudorf-Demmerkogel Runde and the St. Andrä - Höcher Runde, the Demmerkogel with the Klapotetz is a perfect stopover to enjoy the beautiful view.
