Tips

    On the top of the tower you can enjoy a very beautiful view. To get to the top of the tower's platform, you have to squeeze through a narrow hatch. But it's worth it!The entrance to the tower costs 1 EUR and can be paid in the tower.The Turmbaude is a quaint excursion restaurant and impresses with its rustic ambience and the delicious and hearty food. It is a clear recommendation!

    "The Wallenburg refers to the ruins of a hilltop castle on the 523.8 m above sea level of the Heinberg (also Hühnberg) peak above the Auwallenburg district.
    The castle is a protected architectural and ground monument. Interested people from the surrounding areas began exploring the castle ruins as early as the 19th century. Today's entrance to the inside of the tower on the ground floor was created by miners. Perhaps one hoped to find interesting finds in the rubble at the bottom of the tower dungeon. It has been possible to climb the tower again since 1963. In the GDR era, a small kiosk was built below the castle, as the ruins were popular with vacationers and school classes. In 2012 the tower was closed due to dilapidation, repaired in 2013 and then reopened. Today it is used again as an observation tower and can be climbed during the opening times of the neighboring tower building (April to December from Friday to Sunday from 10 a.m.). The view from the tower extends in a westerly direction over the Werra valley and to the Vorderern Rhön. "- de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burg_Wallenburg

    Very quaint little restaurant, which is open on weekends, totally friendly and fast service. In addition to the excursion restaurant a lookout tower, from which one has a magnificent view of the Werratal.

    A side trip is definitely worth it. On the one hand because of the quaint excursion restaurant at the foot of the tower and on the other because of the great view of the Werratal from the tower.

    The food in the tower building is unparalleled, the price / performance ratio is still right. The "ascent" can also be done with small children (in our case 3 and 6 years).
