Tips

  • Ralf

    From the viewing platform you have a wonderful view over the Rhine plain and the Palatinate Forest with Limburg and Bismarck tower. Even today, the flag tower is on a sunny day attraction for many visitors.

    The flag tower, popularly known as "Kaffeemühlchen" because of its shape, is a two-storey tower on the summit of the Fox Mantle at an altitude of 224 m in the middle of the vineyards.

    Nice vantage point high up in the vineyards. The tower was built in the 19th century as an attraction for spa guests.

    Beautiful view over the Rhine valley, we had great weather and could see many details in Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen! But you have to bring food and drink yourself, there is no entertainment! However, it is not very far to the castle tavern Wachtenburg.

    The 10 meter high flag tower was built in 1854 on the dome of the Fuchsmantel southwest of Bad Dürkheim and is >>> the oldest observation tower in the Palatinate!

    Beautiful vantage point with a view over the Rhine plain with Speyer, Bad Dürkheim and Ludwigshafen/Mannheim. There are benches for resting. The flag tower can even be climbed. In the vernacular, the tower is also called "coffee mill" because of its shape.

    If you hike from Bad Dürkheim on the Palatinate Weinsteig, you have the first wonderful view of the day from here.

    The flag tower in the middle of the vineyard is worthwhile in any weather, especially of course with a beautiful view. If you like, you can climb the steps. Inside it is nicely sheltered from the wind and the colorful windows are beautiful

    From the flag tower you have a wonderful view of the Rhine plain; if I had been there a little earlier, I might have seen the sunrise. Maybe next time...
