Impressive tower with seating for resting. The narrow building with its 72 steps, which was built in 1904 in honor of the participants of the Franco-German War, has established itself as a landmark of Lonsheim. It is open day and night and offers a great view over the Rhenish Hessian hills

Around the high tower is a small park with plenty of seating and a relatively large hut that offers protection from the sun and storms. The tower is always open, once you have reached the platform you have a wonderful view.
