    The Rhein-Weser-Turm is a 24 meter high outlook tower on a side of the Westerberg in the Rothaargebirge. The name indicates that the ridge of the Rothaargebirge in many parts forms a watershed: between the rivers that flow into the Rhine and the rivers that flow to the Weser. Several hiking trails cross the tower - such as the Rothaarsteig, the Wilhelm-Münker-Weg and the Christine-Koch Weg. In the Rhein-Weser Turm there is a restaurant and even pension rooms for overnight stays.

    The Rhei-Weser-Turm is operated by Landgasthof Schwermer (hotel-schwemmer.de)

    The view from the Rhein Weser tower is gigantic. The climb in the tower should not be missed.

    From the tower you have a great view. Here ended our day's stage on the Rothaarstieg with a cool wheat in the beer garden :)

    The cake is good and cheap - and a beer and fries always goes: To the view: Gem. Wikipedia: "From the observation deck of the Rhein-Weser-Tower, which is provided on all sides under the windows with orientation boards, offers at almost 704 m altitude a panorama over parts of Rothaargebirge and Sauerland as well as among other things also to these sight targets (clockwise) - with height in meters (m) over normal height zero (NHN):
    Head north to the Kahleberg (710.8 m) and past this to the northeast of Lennestadt near Saalhausen Saalhauser Bergen (to 688.5 m). In the northeast, the Härdler (756.3 m) looks out past the Hohe Hessel (743.6 m). To the east is the Great Head (740.3 m), just south of the Loh (674.5 m) and in the valley beyond Bad Berleburg. South-east, the view extends into the Hessian mountain country to the bagpipe (673.5 m) at Biedenkopf.
    South follows the belt (677.7 m). Looking southwest you can see the Kindelsberg (618.1 m), which is situated far away from the Kreuztal, on which stands the Kindelsberg tower. Closer in this direction are the Eggenkopf (647.3 m), where the Panorama Park Sauerland Wildpark is located, and beyond that the Milsenberg (669.8 m). To the west, the Hohe Bracht (587.7 m) with a lookout tower rises beyond the area of Kirchhundem in the Bilsteiner Land. To the right of it is the Ebbe mountains to the northwest. In the north-northwest beyond the Hundem and Lennetal and the Ilberg (621 m) again the Saalhauser mountains can be seen; thus closes the visual circle. "
