    A small tower barely 16 m high. In Corona times it is quite difficult to get a key. That's why I had a drone with me and could see the area from above. Wonderful how the trees turn green. The tower itself is also interesting.

    In order to climb the Bismarck Tower on the Vierenberg, you must first be on site on the first Sunday of the month, pick up the key from the host of the Berggasthof Hollenstein (about 20 minutes away) and bring it back again. I was luckier, allowed to touch the "artwork" and enjoy the view. Because a guided hiking group from Bad Salzuflen was at the same time on site. She had her own key and invited me.

    Unfortunately this time the door was locked. If you can go up you have a great view. You can get the key but also in the coffee Hollenstein.

    The Bismarckturm Bad Salzuflen is a 18 meter high Bismarck tower on the Vierenberg between deserts, Schötmar, Hollenstein and Bad Salzuflen in the North Rhine-Westphalian district of Lippe in Germany.

    The tower was built according to a design by the building advisor Böhmer from Detmold. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on April 1, 1900, the birthday of Otto von Bismarck. Amtshauptmann Theodor Heldman delivered the ceremonial address in front of about a thousand members of the vocal, gymnastics and warrior associations that had appeared in the district. Half a year later, on October 14, 1900, the anniversary of the Battle of Leipzig, the tower built of carved sandstone and bricks was inaugurated. The construction cost was 12,000 gold marks; Of these, 8,000 marks were brought in through a "fairground for the benefit of the Bismarckthurm fund" and some were donated by Hoffmann's starch factories.

    From the observation deck, the view extends over Bad Salzuflen, the Teutoburg Forest with the Hermann Monument, the Lippe Mountains up to the Kaiser Wilhelm Monument on the Porta Westfalica.

    After a renovation in 1999, the tower was closed in 2003 due to collapse danger. After a further renovation, the reopening took place on January 11, 2005. The Bismarckturm is open at certain times.

    View from the observation deck is only available from May to October every first Sunday of the month between 10:00 and 18:00. Of course the weather has to play as well.

    The tower was built in 1906 as a lookout tower
