    There are 174 Bismarck towers worldwide, of which 31 are in NRW, according to Google & Co. I have seen 18 of them, probably only five or six. The Herforder Bismarck tower made of sandstone, built in 1906, is part of the monuments cult, which began after the death of the Chancellor in 1898. The citizens paid him because they collected money for this. Will there come a time when we donate for the construction of Merkel towers?

    The Bismarck Tower is a 1906 built lookout tower east of the city of Herford on the Stuckenberg. The height of the tower is exactly 23.33 meters. Wikipedia

    What did the Bismarck Tower on the Stuckenberg, built in 1906 from "Gratitude and Recognition for the Unification of the German Empire 1871" and the memorial stone next door, built in 1998 from "Gratitude and as a reminder of the peaceful revolution to German unity in 1989"? Probably nothing. But sitting on the bench next to the memorial stone, one could think about it.

    Unfortunately, the tree population has suffered greatly under Frederike

    The tower was closed most of the time. But from the outside it is also very beautiful.
