    Grandiose view, which makes up for the climb "efforts" again.

    Regional park project lookout tower at Mainhafen
    Mainufer, Wiesbaden-Kostheim
    Urbach Architects
    2011
    As a suitable entrance for the regional park in the urban area of Wiesbaden, the construction designed by architect Florian Urbach stands as a striking three-legged tower on the edge of the Kostheim harbor basin. At the intersection of the Main Cycle Path and the Regional Park Circular Route, a 20 meter high observation tower was built, from which the view sweeps over nature, industrial culture and the surrounding towns - the meadow landscape
    of the river Main, the port with neighboring businesses as well as the state capitals Mainz and Wiesbaden attract the attention of the viewer equally. In the north the long Taunus ridge stretches and in the south, beyond the Ried, the wooded humps of the Odenwald stretch their peaks over the Rhine plain.
    This regional park project combines the topics of nature, industrial culture and inland navigation. The Main flows powerfully shortly before the confluence with the Rhine, plus the Kostheim lock as one of the busiest ship lifts in Europe and the busy coexistence of trade and housing in eastern Kostheim, which is dominated by a large, paper-producing company. A wooden footbridge that rises slightly from the riverside path to the foundation, benches, bike racks, an information stand and a platform that projects over the water complete the ensemble.

    Twenty meters above the harbor of Kostheim, the tower, part of the regional park RheinMain, offers a wonderful view of the Main with its floodplain landscape as well as the harbor and the adjacent industrial enterprises.
    The "Kostheimer Cellulosefabrik" was founded in 1885 and produced tissue paper, paper bags and wrapping paper. Since 1995, the factory has been part of the global company SCA and produces folding towels, roll towels and cleaning rollers, for example for use in hospitals, medical practices, workshops, restaurants or hotels.
