    Well the Gugelturm is definitely worth a visit. Here you can look at the tower and around the Black Forest to deep into Switzerland. Provided the weather allows it. Of course you also have the opportunity to rest and to barbecue here. Take the Gugelturm as a goal or at least as a waypoint in your planning.

    Around Engelschwand and the Gugelturm you will find many beautiful trails and paths. Some of them are quite steep and violent. Who wants to let it go well to fill the tank certainly finds something suitable. Even with a large group we found here a very good point of contact.

    The Gugelturm, jokingly also the new Hotz, is a lookout tower on the Gugel (998 m) in the municipality of Herrischried in the Hotzenwald. The building erected by the Black Forest Association in 1971 to 1974 replaced a bell-shaped predecessor from 1929/1930. With its impressive height of 30.5 m, it rises into the Hotzenwald sky. As soon as the 90 steps to the observation deck have been climbed via a spiral staircase, the view includes the southern Black Forest with the Hotzenwald, the Randen, the Hochrheintal and the Swiss Jura. With good visibility you can see the Vosges and the Swiss Alps.

    High tower with amazing view upon the Swiss Alps in the distance.
    Little fee is asked for entree, but the view is totally worth it.
