    The Kellerwald Tower was built of resilient larch heartwood. He has 123 steps. Because of its deliberately flexible but sturdy design in diagonal double tongs design, the tower gives way in crosswinds or when loaded with lateral buckling. The visitor notices this by a slight sway.At the foot of the observation tower, benches and tables were set up in the open air. The ground floor of the tower serves as a refuge, with additional benches and information boards about the flora, fauna, geology and history of the Kellerwald.(Source: Wikipedia)

    It was a very nice hike and that was not the last to the tower and the mousetrap & exhelmer stones.

    The Kellerwald tower on the Wüstegarten is at 675 m the highest elevation in the Schwalm-Eder-Kreis.
    Since autumn 2003, the 28 m high Kellerwald Tower, which was officially inaugurated on May 9, 2004, stands on the summit of the Wüstegarten. He replaced the 18 m high lookout tower from 1971.

    The 3 mountain running, which is usually held in early April, is a great tour. You can also hike this tour externally in a day trip. It goes from Dodenhausen on the "Hohes Lohr" on the "Jeust" and finally on the third mountain "Wüstegarten"! If you climb the tower then you deserve a summit schnapps! Distance 26 km.

    The tower was built by a local carpenter. When you are on top you notice that the tower trembles slightly ...
