    The Schauenberg was a high watch in earlier times. This alarm system was very fast: in the Canton of Zurich, for example, all 23 high-watchers were able to transmit the signal in 15 minutes.
    The Hochwachten were used for the last time in 1870 during the Franco-Prussian War.

    The view from Schauenberg is fantastic in good weather and far !!! There is an alpine panoramic map showing peaks up to 170 km away. Wonderful view to the north over the Thurgau to Baden-Württemberg. Geo-cachers will not be disappointed. No wonder our medieval ancestors built a castle up there above whose interesting history a plaque gives information.

    Regionally seen one of the most beautiful and best-known viewpoints.

    Especially in the cold season, when a sea of fog has formed, the view from the ruin is magnificent.
