    Great view from up here over Aschaffenburg and beyond. The relic from a not so beautiful past can still be guessed above the entrance.

    The tower is still used for climbing today, but by free climbers.

    At the top of the Stengerts is the 22 meter high Dr. Hönlein tower (formerly: Hindenburg tower). It was opened on May 23, 1937 with its 100 steps by the Spessartbund and named after Paul von Hindenburg.

    Great view over Aschaffenburg, albeit through barred "windows". The tower was formerly used for abseiling exercises by the US Army. Many distant symbols indicate a dark past.

    The tower is freely accessible and if you have made the 106 steps to the viewing platform, you will be rewarded with a beautiful view as far as Aschaffenburg and the Vorspessart. Only the close-meshed grilles on the windows cloud the view a little, which could have been made a little more "view-friendly"

    Interesting tower and when you have made the 106 steps to the viewing platform you will be rewarded with a beautiful view. Only the bars in front of the windows cloud the view a bit, which could have been made a bit more "view-friendly".
