    From the Lehenkopf tower you have a wonderful all-round view of the entire Black Forest. This wooden tower is easy to climb and entry is free. There are two places below for sitting and grilling. This place is also easy to reach by bike and from here you can continue in all directions.

    The ascent of St. Blasien is a romantic, promising path. The tower is free and always open. The 19 meter high tower, which offers a fantastic panoramic view of the cathedral city of St. Blasien and the Hotzenwald, stands on the boundary between Dachsberg and St. Blasien.

    The tower was built in 1886 by the St. Blasier Kurverein with a height of 22 meters. In 1975 there was a major renovation because the tower was exposed not only to wind and weather, but also to the never-ending vandalism. In 2011, the year of the 125th anniversary, further renovation was considered necessary. The inauguration of the restored tower was celebrated on May 7, 2016 with a crouch on the tower.

    The Black Forest Schluchtensteig leads past the Lehenkopfturm. Nearby there is a barbecue area in the direction of St. Blasien, about 600 meters away.

    Not far from St. Blasien, the Lehenkopf tower allows a magnificent panoramic view of the entire surrounding landscape.
    The tower was built in closed wood and the wide wooden staircase inside has two intermediate floors. This ensures that people with fear of heights can finally climb such a tower and enjoy the view. So almost no risk of dizziness! Due to the closed construction, the view can only be through barred windows.
    Around the tower there are several benches for a rest and sunbathing.

    The Lehenkopfturm stands on the 1,039-meter-high Lehenkopf, directly on the Schluchtensteig long-distance hiking trail between St. Blasien and Dachsberg. The 18 meter high tower offers a wonderful panoramic view of St. Blasien.
    The Lehenkopf tower, built in 1886, stands on the 1,039-meter-high Lehenkopf, right on the Schluchtensteig long-distance hiking trail. In 1975 the tower, which was once 22 meters high, was reduced to the current height of 18 meters. After 40 years, the tower was restored in 2015 and inaugurated again in spring 2016. The remedial measures cost € 43,000, half of which was funded by the Southern Black Forest Nature Park. A wooden floor was installed in the lower area of the tower.

    No admission - freely accessible all year round.

    From the Tum you have a great view of the surrounding area. Especially in the morning, when the fog is still low, you can enjoy a very special atmosphere here.

    Wow. This passage is a popular destination for ravine walkers, but it is not overcrowded. The interior of the tower provides protection on several levels, even in severe weather, as well as a barbecue area and several benches as well as a revolving sun lounger. The view here is just as gigantic, the view towards Menzenschwand and Feldberg a "must" for selfies.
