    Magnificent panoramic view from the highest point of the Odenwald.
    In addition to the tower, there are also some picnic options on rest benches (new or optionally moss-covered). There are some interesting rocks not far from the tower.

    The Katzenbuckelturm
    ... and the phenomenon of the magnetic summit rocks

    Don't forget the compass when hiking the cat's hump; on the summit rocks you can observe an amazing phenomenon. "Some claim that a deviation of the magnetic needle on the cat's hump has already been observed. But this seems to be based on a mistake," believed Albert Ludwig Grimm at the time. But it is not a mistake! Lightning has produced a significant magnetic deviation on the magnetite-containing summit rocks. Give it a try yourself ...

    Well-preserved tower that can be climbed. The climb is quite narrow, with some viewing windows. Above a beautiful panoramic view of the Odenwald. Enough space for several people.

    Great view from the highest point in the Odenwald. Climbing the tower is worthwhile even if the spiral staircase is narrow and dark in some places. It is recommended to have a flashlight or cell phone with you.

    With its 626 m, the Katzenbuckel is the highest elevation in the Odenwald. It is an extinct volcano. It is located between Eberbach am Neckar and Waldbrunn in Baden-Württemberg. From its 20 m high observation tower you have a wonderful view over the Odenwald to the Neckar

    From up here you really have a magnificent view of the Odenwald. It's also nice to see how the landscape changes, depending on which direction you look. Ascent is narrow, space for several people at the top.
