  • Small tower with a great all-round view At the foot of the tower nice little picnic area, unfortunately without a view for sheltered from the wind, which can also be beneficial.

  • For 35 years I didn't know anything about the tower, only discovered thanks to Komoot. If the trees were 2 meters smaller, it would certainly be the perfect view over the whole of Central Hesse

  • The Altenberg is a place with history. Around 1321, the Counts of Solms built Alt-Hohensolms Castle here, which was intended to secure their dominion against the neighboring Königsberg Castle. In 1323 the complex was first mentioned in a document. It remains unclear whether a settlement already belonged to the castle at that time.
    Alt-Hohensolms Castle only existed for about 30 years, as military conflicts between the people of Solms and the imperial city of Wetzlar led to the first storming in 1328 and to its final destruction in 1349. A decree issued by Emperor Charles IV prohibited the reconstruction of the castle. However, the Counts of Solms knew how to circumvent this order by simply switching to Ramsberg, about 2 km further north. There they built Hohensolms Castle, which still exists today, in 1350. The former location has since been known only as the old mountain (Altenberg).
    The walls of the castle are now in ruins. However, the scarcely explored remains of a double ring wall and deep ditches can still be seen on the slopes of the Altenberg. Today, the hilltop is crowned by an observation tower, which was probably built in the middle of the 19th century using stones from the former castle.

  • Giraffes have it easier, but admittedly, they are rarely on the turret ... must be on the stairs.

  • Exactly in the middle of the hike, the perfect place to relax and have a picnic. From the tower you have a wonderful view of the great Feldberg in the Taunus and good all-round information about the places and landscapes in the area.
