鸛雀樓 is a tower in Shanxi province, with three floors, situated between mountains and the Yellow River.
窮 in the third line is like 盡 here, meaning “furthest”. 里 has been translated as ‘mile’ above, although more accurately one 里 is a third of a mile.
The last line, 更上一層樓, is now a general idiom for taking things up a level, a bit like the colloquial 加油.
