The history of the lookout tower at the top of Oslednice dates back to the last century, when a 16-meter-high wooden lookout tower was built here on the initiative of Alois Kulhánek, a local professor. The project was then developed by František Hulička. Alois Kulhánek was probably also the only one who financed the construction of the lookout tower. The lookout tower was probably built in 1898 and perhaps disappeared sometime during the First Republic. During this period, a triangulation tower was also built here, which was accessible to tourists.
Radiomobil undertook the construction of a new lookout tower in 1999. The iron structure was built here in order to improve the signal, while it was also to serve as a tourist lookout tower. Its grand opening took place on March 25, 2000 and was attended by about 800 visitors. The lookout tower is operated by the Czech Tourists Club.
