Mountain Biking Highlight
If you want to have the total Rennsteig overview: Here is your chance! The observation tower "Rennsteigwarte" stands on the donkey mountain and increases it by another 33 meters. 150 steps you have to overcome, then beckons great views of the Schneekopf, the Schwarzatal or the summits of the Fichtelgebirge. If you want to make the Rennsteig in one day, you better leave this stop;)
Mon. to Sun. 9am to 7pm

Once you have climbed the tower you will find that it was worth it. You can see all the prominent elevations, such as the Gleichberge, the Straufhain, the Bleßberg, the Veste Coburg and many more. Even the Rhön is clearly visible. The upper reservoir of Goldisthal can also be seen. The weather has to be right. Definitely worth it.

Wide view of the surrounding area.
The tower is clad all around.
So you can climb up even in bad weather.
Please bring € 1 for the turnstile.
The staff in the restaurant next door is nasty when you want to change money.
If the tourism association does not manage to find a solution here, you should set up an exchange machine. If he only changes 5 euro notes, the number of ascents will surely increase. We had the right change because they gave us the tip in the local tourist information office.
