The stone lookout tower is the trademark of Brandenkopf. Since 1929 there is the 32 meter high tower, which you can climb all year round. A donation is requested. The Brandenkopf gets its name from a big forest fire in the year 1730. Before that the mountain was named Varnlehenskopf. The view from the 945 meter high mountain is spectacular. With really good visibility you can even see the Vosges.
Next to the observation tower you will also find the Berggasthof. In addition to a large beer garden, there is also a playground for romping for children. Tuesday and Wednesday are closed. Further information can be found here: brandenkopf.net.
