    The tower of the Heuchelberger Warte was once part of the Württemberg Landgraben defense line and a monitorable customs border for all north-south traffic in the Neckar valley. Those who are not afraid of the effort of the ascent will experience a magnificent all-round view high up on the tower. The stations on the Heuchelberger Wald adventure trail are an entertaining companion especially for children up to the Heuchelberger Warte.

    Nice, steep, wonderful all-round view. The way up is worthwhile in any case and whoever makes it up the tower will be rewarded with a fantastic view.

    Great view of the country. The restaurant is very lovingly and idyllically located, with very good food and very nice cakes and pies. There are many outdoor seating and a large playground

    Beautiful tower on the high mountain on the edge of the Neckar valley. Great view! There is plenty of food in the restaurant.

    An always well-attended restaurant on the tower on the Heuchelberg. From Leinfelden, however, the ascent by bike is very strenuous.

    The Heuchelberger Warte is a former watchtower in the Heilbronn district, which today serves as a lookout tower. It is 315 m above sea level. NN at the eastern tip of the Heuchelberg ridge and allows a view over large parts of the Württemberg lowlands. If the weather is good, you supposedly have a distance of up to 80 km from here. The panoramic view stretches from the Stuttgart TV tower to the Heidelberger Königsstuhl, which was built in 1483 under the Württemberg Count Eberhard im Bart. It served as the western cornerstone of the "Württemberg Landgraben", a border wall that formed the northern border of Württemberg at the time and blocked off the Neckar Valley between Heuchelberg and Löwensteiner Mountains over a length of 23 km. The view that the tower offered over large areas of the lowlands was used to monitor the border. When Württemberg expanded to the north in 1805, the moat lost its importance and was leveled. Since the tower never played a significant role in military conflicts, it fell into disrepair over the course of the following centuries.
    It was not until the end of the 19th century that the meaning of the tower was considered, but no longer as a waiting tower but as a lookout tower. With donations from the community of Großgartach, where the tower was located, it was renovated or rebuilt in its current form in 1897/98 in cooperation with the Heilbronn local group of the Swabian Alb Association, and in the process also increased somewhat. Another renovation took place in 1952.

    Heuchelberger Warte is worth a tour. A comfortable break is possible at the top and beautiful downhill trails through the forest! It is also worth a trip for hikers

    You don't necessarily have to choose the Direttissima by bike. You can also reach the summit (waiting tower) through the corresponding serpentines in the vineyards.
