The lookout tower on the Císařský kámen hill has been standing since 2009. It was built on the initiative of the village of Rádlo. The original plan was to build a lookout tower before the start of the World Championships in classic skiing in Liberec, which then fell on February 18, 2009. Unfortunately, this plan failed mainly due to lack of funds. The completion of the lookout tower was postponed until the end of June 2009.
The construction of the lookout tower is wooden, complemented by steel elements. The grand opening took place on September 19, 2009.
