One of the numerous Bismarck towers that was erected as monuments for the founder of the empire around the turn of the century throughout Germany. The tower on the Hemsberg is 19 meters high and was built by the Odenwald Club, which still maintains and operates it today. In summer, the tower is open on Sundays and public holidays. Next to the viewing platform, you can also visit the small café.

After a somewhat strenuous ascent, the Bismarck Tower offers enough space to recover for the march on the Burgensteig. In addition, outside the Corona times, there is a sale by the OWK local group Bensheim on weekends, which makes it twice as pleasant.
