The Moosturm is located on the Mooskopf (877 meters) and offers you a wonderful view of the Renchtal, the Rheinebe and in good weather even up to the Vosges. The 21 meter high tower was built in 1890 in red sandstone. About the mountain run the long distance trails Renchtalsteig, Kandelhöhenweg and the cross-way Gengenbach-Schapbach-Alpirsbach.
Very close to the tower stands the impressive Lothar monument. It commemorates the severe damage caused by the storm Lothar on December 26, 1999 on the moss and Siedigkopf. Before the storm, the summit was densely wooded, then the entire tree population was destroyed. After all, now grows in place of the former monoculture, a significantly colorful and species-rich forest.
