    Opening hours:
    April to October:
    Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday & public holidays 10am to 6pm

    November to March:
    Sunday 10am to 6pm

    Very nice old tower in the middle of the Palatinate. The tower has a kiosk. Climbing the tower is also possible, if one observes the opening times.

    Good starting point and if the tower is open, great view!

    36m high Buntsandstein tower on the Peterskopf.
    Very impressive building with a great view.

    Ascent is chargeable. Downstairs is a small kiosk with outdoor seating.

    Really impressive tower. Due to the easy accessibility e.g. Lindemannsruhe is on good summer or autumn days, something good going on.

    Beautiful Bismarck tower, the climb rewarded for € 1.50 with a panoramic view of the Black Forest and the ODENWALD. The Bismarck tower is a 36 m high observation tower on the 493 m high Peterskopf. He is well maintained and maintained by the Drachenfels Club.

    Nearby is the lodge Lindemannsruhe with a comfortable stop.
    about 300 meters from the Bismarckturm

    The tower is not always accessible (opening hours note) but also if it is closed is worth seeing. Benches invite you to rest and linger. Here also cross different hiking trails.

    Kiosk does not always open, please note.
    Otherwise, easy to reach from the turnpike or the Lindemannsruhe, who likes cozy

    Very nicely located tower, which had opened with us already in October only on few days. (Food in the Lindenmannsruhe leaves a lot to be desired.) We would call it a snack bar with seating, impersonal and bad value for money, we would not visit again.)

    A memorial tower with magnificent views and nice, small restaurants. The climb costs € 1 for adults, € 0.50 for children (as of 2018) and is well worth it. Is easy to walk in (compared to many churches in which I have ever turned back).

    Currently closed due to Corona, but the tower is absolutely worth a visit and the influx of visitors was very limited today

    Today of course - closed due to the corona - but really impressive.

    A special landmark, as it can still be seen very far in the Rhine plain.

    The Bismarck tower is a 36 m high observation tower on the 493.5 m above sea level. NHN high Peterskopf in the Haardt mountain range on the eastern edge of the Palatinate Forest (Rhineland-Palatinate). He stands on an exclave of the local church Kallstadt and is called because of the proximity of the county town Bad Dürkheim also as Bismarckturm Bad Dürkheim.

    The Lindemannsruhe with the Bismarkturm is just as popular with families as it is with the freeride and downhill scene, which gladly uses the steeply sloping paths rugged by the rock. Even in winter, the area is relatively snow-sure and is therefore populated on the weekends with sledding kids.
