I counted 125 steps. At the observation tower benches invite you to linger. The view from the tower just fantastic, even if it was not so clear today. The way there went mostly through the forest, back to the parking lot then over the field and the contemplative Eifel-town Boos. An all around beautiful route even for inexperienced walkers as I am easy to deal with

The forecourt is designed with a few rest areas and a wooden teepee for children.
The Eifel Tower in Boos was built in autumn 2003. After more than 100m³ of foundation concrete with around 6 tons of reinforcing steel had been completed, carpenters assembled the tower horizontally. The tower construction is supported by 3 round logs, obtained from Douglas firs from the Boos forest. Finally, on December 6th, 2003 the time had come. Two crane vehicles put the observation tower on its feet. Since then, the 25 m high tower with its 125 steps has provided a unique view of the Eifel. A total of 9.5m³ round logs, 22.5m³ glued laminated timber and 10m³ construction timber were required, this corresponds to the consumption of wood for 6 single-family houses. Around 11 tons of steel connecting ropes stabilize the wooden structure; they are fastened with over 1000 steel dowels and almost 350 steel bolts.
It zigzags up 9 floors. It's very windy up here, but the foresight is very impressive.
