    The name of the tower derives from a love story from the 17th century. The then King of Sweden, former Prince Friedrich of Hesse-Cassel, gave his lover, a courtly wife of his wife, the Ostholsteinischen goods Panker, Klampp, Schmoel and Hohenfelde as financial security. In 1868, King William I awarded these four Hessian estates the title "Hessenstein reign".
    Today, the observation tower is a popular destination. For the ascent to the 17-meter-high tower with its 111 steps you will be rewarded with a great view: In good weather and clear views, the panoramic view from Bungsberg to the cranes of Kiel shipyards, to Fehmarn and even across the Baltic Sea to the Danish Islands.
