    Grandiose panoramic view from the highest point of the Odenwald.
    Beside the tower there are also some picnic possibilities.

    In addition to the lookout tower, there are also some resting benches (new or optionally moss-covered) on the summit of the hump. Not far from the tower are a few interesting rocks.

    The cat humpback tower
    ... and the phenomenon of magnetic summit rocks
    Do not forget the compass when you hike the cat hump; at the summit ridges you can observe an amazing phenomenon. "Some say that they have already observed a deviation of the magnetic needle on the cat's hump, but this seems to be due to a mistake," said Albert Ludwig Grimm at the time. But it is not a mistake! At the magnetite-containing summit rocks, lightning has produced a significant magnetic deviation. Try it yourself ...
