    If you want to go all the way up, you have to climb 105 steps! Once at the top, you can see the Leipzig Monument to the Battle of the Nations in good visibility. The tower itself has a height of about 30 meters and dates from the 10th century, the age refers to the foundation, because the tower was rebuilt several times.

    The Red Tower was built in the 13th century, and is over thirty meters high. He is no longer walkable, you had a fantastic view.

    The 13th-century Red Tower is 30 meters high. Over 105 steps you reach the observation deck. From here, the visitor has a far-reaching view over the landscape park Goitzsche, the local situation Pouch and in the background the Muldestausee and the Dübener Heide. On a clear day you can even see the Monument to the Battle of the Nations and the University of Leipzig as well as the Petersberg near Halle.
    From afar, the Red Tower points the way to the adjacent Schloss Pouch. Only a few remnants of the wall suggest that there was a castle in the 10th century.

    The Red Tower was built in the 13th century and served as a defensive and prison facility. More than 100 steps lead to the nearly 30-meter-high viewing platform. Because of the so-called Becher bet - a local Heimatsage - the tower is known.
