"At the beginning of the 19th century there were pavilions on the summit that were used by the Saxon kings, especially King Anton, for hunting purposes. After initial attempts to cater for the mountain's guests had failed, Carl Mutze from Geising took the initiative and erected an observation scaffold and a log cabin around a maple tree on the summit. This is exactly where the 18-meter-high Louisenturm was opened on September 27, 1891, with 88 steps still leading to its observation platform. It was named after the fiancée of the future king Friedrich August III of Saxony, Princess Louise.
In 1898 an accommodation house was built next to it, which was demolished again in 1906 and replaced by a mountain hut built on solid ground. This was initially only managed during the summer season and still invites you to visit today. "Wikipedia - Geisingberg
