    The "Telecommunications Tower Barsinghausen", which was put into operation in 1969 after a two-year construction period, was originally named after the city of Bad Münder - the main direction of its transmission facilities. But even this name is not quite correct, because it is located in Lauenau area. With its total height of 150 meters, it is only 78th in the list of the tallest towers in Germany. The shaft is 139 meters high, 75 meters above the forest floor opens the first platform.Originally, the widely visible building stood "only" 140 meters into the sky. Due to the construction of the private broadcaster ffn and the due installation of antenna systems, in 1987 the entire tower head was exchanged in a costly measure and a higher transmission mast with better stability was mounted.

    Something hides the sign for Heisterburg. After a short distance we reach the remains of an old refuge. Right at the entrance, a board where, if not smeared, you can read everything worth knowing. But in brief: The Heisterburg is an old Germanic flying castle. In times of danger, the nearby population, including their mobile property, could find shelter here. When this Wallburg was really built, the historians argue about it. The finds that were made in the complex pointed to the 10th to 12th century. The main castle is about 105 x 85 m in size and is surrounded by a 1.70 m strong mortar wall. At the rear were wall piles surrounded by a 2.50 m deep ditch. In the NW and SO corner were gates that could be closed in case of danger.

    Well, there is not much to see there, more to the hills to guess.

    Anyone interested in historic mining can get first-hand information from the Förderverein Feggendorferstollen (Sundays in the summer Hj).
    Mountain boots are sufficient for stollen driving, if it has been very wet before rubber boots are recommended.

    Not really a castle. It takes a little imagination to imagine a castle. But to help there are some information boards. But the way from Kreuzbuche to Heisterburg and then to Teufelsbrücke is all the more beautiful.

    Old castle complex where, apart from a few remains of the wall, there are no more ruins. However, the wall of the wall and the moat in front of the castle can be seen very well.

    The castle itself no longer stands, but you can still see the walls and ramparts. If you follow the path, you come out on Günther-Altenburg-Weg at the radio tower.
