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)

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.
