    The Lucas Cranach Tower is a 22 meter high lookout tower of the Frankenwaldverein near the Upper Franconian district town of Kronach. He is named after the German painter and graphic artist Lucas Cranach (1472 - 1553), who was born in Kronach. The observation deck of the tower is located 18 meters above the ground and can be reached via a spiral staircase with 88 steps.

    Here many hiking trails lead along, e.g. also the Frankenweg. The region is fantastic for hiking (especially in summer). For the hikers, there are wonderful views on all sides.

    The Lucas-Cranach-Turm of the Frankenwaldverein e.V. is located directly on the FrankenwaldSteig, on the FrankenwaldSteigla Stübengraben-Weg and on the Frankenweg and offers a wonderful view of Kronach with the fortress Rosenberg and the Kronacher Land. At the bottom of the tower is a group of seats, which invites to a rest.
