    The tower is 16.3m high and its wall on the ground floor is one meter thick. Occasion of the construction of the tower was the silver wedding of Emperor Wilhelm II and Empress Auguste Victoria and the memory of Kaiser Wilhelm I.

    Especially in the case of the plus straight in the lowlands, it is still snowy here in winter. 👌🔝👌

    For one, the way over the Brünnchen along the racetrack and then through the forest is beautiful and then the grandiose view that you have from up there as well as the fact that the Hohe Acht is the highest point of the Eifel are reasons enough, right?

    Highest point in the Eifel! It's worth it! The Kaiser Wilhelm Tower is freely accessible and right next to it. The view from the tower is awesome!

    The last few meters to the Kaiser Wilhelm Tower are very strenuous, but the view compensates for it when the weather is good

    The Nordschleife is open in winter and you can commit to it. Very cool with a sleigh 👍

    Freely accessible and absolutely recommendable! The view from the highest mountain in the Eifel is really great! The Nürburgring is also easy to see and hear from there!

    The Kaiser Wilhelm Tower offers a beautiful all-round view. The climb is relatively steep, but worthwhile.

    In the 1950's we learned at school that the Hohe Acht was 808 m high. Who made the mountain so much lower?

    Hello Nieres, I laughed a lot at your hint! I learned at school that the largest church in the Eifel is Cologne Cathedral - either things change or school is (in part) overrated. Then I remember a quote from Goethe: I hiked what I learned. 😃

    Immediately, a little hidden behind it, is the summit stone of the highest mountain in the Eifel

    From Gasthaus Hohe Acht briefly up to the tower. A winter dream. Unfortunately back to Bonn through the battered Ahr valley
