The Tower of Little France or Thurm France is the pre-festival for Berwartstein Castle, from which you have a beautiful view from here.
Unfortunately, the tower is closed and not accessible. For the view alone, a detour from the Ritter Trapp Weg, which passes close to the tower, is worthwhile.
More information about the tower can be found here:
For beautiful photos of the castle it is definitely worth a camera with a telephoto lens dabeizuhaben.

This small tower ruin with a magnificent view belongs to the nearby castle Berwartstein, which can be seen from up there well. The tower was built many years after completion of Berwartstein to better eradicate the weak point of the castle. From the towers of the castle and the Tower of Little France you could recognize the approaching enemies early on and attack directly from two sides. The name Little France was given to the tower because of its main role at that time in defending the French.
There is also a GeoCache here ;-)
