    From the observation tower on the 481 meter high Stäffelsberg you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the southern Palatinate far into the Rhine plain, across to Alsace, in the Palatinate Forest, with good views to the Black Forest and the Vosges.The predecessor of the current tower, built in 1887, was demolished by the French military government in 1947, as the 15-meter-high sandstone tower also served military purposes. The teacher Josef Knieriemen, based in Dörrenbach, had made the construction of this first Stäffelsberg tower worthwhile.The Dörrenbacher were, of course, not satisfied with the loss of their tower: Near the old place built in 1964 Dörrenbacher Heimatbund a new, 21 m high round concrete tower. Almost half a century later, this interior and exterior was thoroughly renovated and embellished. The reopening of the tower celebrated the people in a big, happy ceremony on 1 May 2012, exactly 125 years after the first laying of the foundation stone.

    After you have climbed the many steps with difficulty, you will be rewarded with an outstanding 360 ° view over the southern Palatinate Forest. In front of the tower there are benches and tables for a rest. The tower is easily accessible on foot and by mountain bike via a variety of paths.
