    From up here you have a great view of the Warmetal.
    Here also leads the Habichtswaldsteig.
    The Schreckenberg Tower is located northeast above the city center of Zierenberg on the within the Habichtswald Nature Park located large Schreckenberg (461 m above sea level NHN). It is located about 275 m south of the south summit of the mountain at almost 460 m altitude.

    A beautiful way to the Schreckenberg tower. The ascent in the tower is only for slim people - pretty tight. In addition, you should head in some places, otherwise there is a headache :-) View on the tower - great! Descent can then be taken over the "Blue Stones" - also a beautiful path, where you have to be careful in the wet here.

    Very sporty staircase in the tower. Too obese should not be here and for people with claustrophobia it is not exactly conducive.
    But who made it to the top, the expected a magnificent view.

    Great tower with a beautiful view of the Dörnberg and the town of Zierenberg. You shouldn't be claustrophobic when climbing. It's very narrow and the ladders are quite steep.

    A pinch of adventure on the way up: narrow, steep stairs in the dark tower. But if you are first oban, then "wow": great all-round view.

    57 steps. Better take the backpack off.

    The ascent through the block seas is worthwhile. At the top of the Schreckenberg (461 meters) an old watch tower awaits you, which was rebuilt in 1911. From above you have a wonderful view of the Hohen Dörnberg and the Habichtswald. Beautiful beech forests with narrow paths can be found on the Schreckenberg.
