The lookout has cylindrical made-of-stone structure with a viewing platform and battlements on the top. Currently, it is 26 m high with a wooden staircase inside, consisting of 134 stairs. The lookout was built between 1901 and 1903. The project was designed by an architect Ernst Latzel thanks to Krnov section of Moravia-Silesian Sudeten Mountain Corporation. Unfortunately, the lookout used to look more beautified in the past than it does at present. At the end of the World War II, the lookout served as a watchtower of German troops, which settled and fortified at the top of Cvilin peak. There used to be a turret at the lookout top. Unfortunately, it was removed during reconstruction works.

Cvilin lookout was funded by a public donation. Nevertheless, without a financial support of the prince of Liechtenstein, it would have never been built. To express their gratitude, the builders named the tower after this generous donator.
