    Hainich-Blick is a lookout tower near Hütscheroda in the Wartburgkreis and is located in the Hainich National Park in Thuringia.
    The tower opened on June 17, 2011 stands on Heidelberg (448.1 m above sea level) and has a height of 20.6 meters. It was built as a wooden structure and has an open staircase and a covered viewing platform. 34 solid cubic meters of wood were used for the construction, only local types of timber were used: larch, oak, Douglas fir and spruce. Chemical wood preservatives were not used. [2]
    The tower is located in the western part of the national park area on the newly created “wildcat path” (marking: stylized cat). The location was previously known as "General Hill" - it is a relic from the time of the military training area Kindel.
    With the newly created lookout tower, the national park has another attractive sight that can be visited without admission. The tower is a landmark and serves for orientation in the southern open area of the park.
