Bike Touring Highlight
In the 19th century, the Wunnenstein became a focal point of patriotic enthusiasm in Württemberg. The triggers were not least poems by Ludwig Uhland, in which the deeds of the "glistening wolf" were glorified. The mountain became a popular destination, so that a Wunnenstein guide appeared in 1819. In 1847 the first viewing platform was built on the mountain. In 1887, a fundraiser on the occasion of Ludwig Uhland's 100th birthday raised money for a stone lookout tower, which was inaugurated in 1888 on the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Döffingen. This tower, which is now 22 m high, was built on the foundation of the dilapidated church tower. Medieval ashlar stones were used in its construction, which probably come from the remains of the castle or the church. In 1937, the lookout tower was raised using a wooden structure and given a new bell.
