    The Schänzelturm is a 13 m high observation tower built in 1874 on the Steigerkopf near Edenkoben in the Rhineland-Palatinate district of Südliche Weinstrasse and at the same time the highest tower in the low mountain range of the Palatinate Forest.

    Below the Schänzelturm was 1795 a battlefield. This is recalled by two large memorial stones. On the way, there are still several carved stones indicating the battle.

    Was not on the tower. But it also has a nice table next to the tower with benches where you can take a break.

    At the tower you can find information about Franco-German history. The view from the tower plateau is also worth the climb.

    At the foot of the tower there is a table with benches and from above you have a beautiful all-round view of the Palatinate Forest. When the weather is nice, lizards cavort on the platform.

    Also beautiful in winter, we had a great view with a fabulous bluing of the mountains. Great view of the snowy peaks. The hiking trails around it are often narrow and very beautiful!
