    To climb the tower is worthwhile only if you need a few meters, but otherwise you can get information on the ground floor.

    Duke Ernst II of Saxony-Gotha-Altenburg had in 1772 on the summit a small station for astronomical observations to build, which burned down in 1796. In 1852, a stone observation tower was built, but it has not survived. During the Second World War, the Schneekopf had a function in air reconnaissance in central Germany. In 1945 he was first occupied by US troops, then by the Red Army. In 1946, a hurricane led to windbreak damage so severe that the summit has since been clear of trees (Wikipedia).

    ... and with 978 m the second highest elevation of Thuringia after the Great Beerberg (982.9). From here you can enjoy all-round magnificent views.

    Beautiful vantage point with wide view, if no fog.
