    The Waldnerturm, also called the "four-tower tower", is about ten meters high and is located on a 267 meter high saddle between two clearly higher hills, the Kreuzberg and the Bocksberg. For what? The tower was intended as a venue and resting place for noble hunting companies, later he was a weekend hostel of a youth organization. After all, you have a top view here to one side: to the west you have a clear view of the Rhine plain. Opposite, you can already see the drumming and look forward to climbing it by bike. Speaking of: once climb the tower is also one of them. By the way: There is a fireplace here - if the break should be a bit luscious.

    The tower is accessible. He was mid-19th century. built and was used until 1933 as a weekend.

    The Waldner tower, or four-tower tower is always worth a visit. Geocacher from the region gather here on Christmas Eve

    I drove the tour today, 4.8.19 for the first time. I (57, untrained) made the first climb up the church, albeit in the smallest gear. Once at the top, it is quite easy (slightly downhill, then slightly uphill) towards Birkenau. After Birkenau there is a decent downhill and it was to be feared, then after coming down again. That comes even if you turn right after a piece of road in the forest. The gravel road pulls badly up the mountain and in the end, nothing helped, had to dismount and push. What I mean by that: The tour is easily described, which definitely applies to the underground. At the fitness level, at least it should be mentioned that at least you have to have driven a few climbs before you can achieve this increase. After that it feels like it's just downhill. Small break at the tower, which is really wonderful and worth seeing in the landscape. From the tower back to the starting point (church) it is then only a relaxed downhill glide.
    My conclusion: Beautiful track with two challenges for me challenging climbs, where I once had to dismount.
