From there you can continue the stamping tour to Ferdinand stone HWN 16, which is about 1.6 km away, or via the Huyseburger hay path to the HWN 25 forester's monument.

The view from the tower was probably gigantic when the Harz Club erected the tower there at the turn of the century, but now you can only see dead trees in all directions and the view of the Brocken is better from below. There are also some trees lying across from the storm on the way up. It is only worth going up to cool off because there is usually a nice breeze blowing there ...

Well hidden in the forest of the Harz National Park lies the wolf cliff. This place shines with its atmosphere, especially in light fog. The stamp office is a bit removed from the observation tower. In spite of everything, you should climb this tower, even if the view is not so far off. The tower is located east of the stamp box.
