Bike Touring Highlight
The Lönsturm was built in 1928 as a viewing platform on the Thüster mountain.
A tower in honor of Hermann Lons
This tower stands approximately at the highest point of the canary stone, which is the highest point of the Thüster mountain.
Once climbed, it provides clear views of the Brocken in the Harz and the Hermann Monument in the Teutoburg Forest.
Surrounded by young beeches at the time, they grew over the tower over the years, so it had to be raised twice to meet its purpose. In 1972 he was raised to the 950th anniversary of Salzhemmendorf the first time at 22 m and in 1997 by another 4 m to its current height of 26 m.
