The Carolinen tower is a 26 m high observation tower, which was built in 1909 in honor of the deceased Grand Duchess Caroline of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach made of calcareous sandstone. If you have climbed the 106 steps to the viewing platform, there is a good view of Weimar, Kiliansroda, Mechelroda, Mellingen, the Thuringian Basin, in good visibility to Kyffhäuser and resin. In the south, the chain of the Thuringian Forest is recognizable.
