    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.

    There is also a small rest hut on the tower, which can provide shelter from the sun or rain

    Not far from the Moosturm stands the (storm) "Lothar monument" as a monumental wooden sculpture! Really nice and worth seeing! Also the great view!

    Even when the children are tired, strength is released again. And the view can wander high above the Black Forest summit.

    Magnificent 360 ° view from the tower. An absolute must. The view from the tower alone is worth the climb up the moss

    Beware, the tower is home to very aggressive rodents.
