    34 meters high is the lookout tower on the 662 meter high horse's head. The climb is worth it: from the top you have a fantastic view. An information board shows you what you can see in the distance. Benches around the tower invite you to take a break.

    The tower on the horse's head is at least 37 meters high and offers a great view.

    When the weather is nice you really have a great view even over to Feldberg. A worthwhile climb that feels over 163 steps to the top of the tower. A look down leaves some and we are a bit queasy, but the magnificent view makes up for the effort.

    Great view once you have climbed the ca.163 steps up to the top. But it has always been worth it.

    The ascent to the observation tower is worth every step.
