    Here, on the highest point of the city forest, once stood a lookout tower. The Furrerturm - named after the former Lord Mayor Ludwig Pelzer - was blown up in 1944 by the American troops. Today there are only a few rocks left.
    That's a pity! Must have been a beautiful observation tower.

    It's a pity that the tower does not exist anymore. You need imagination to introduce yourself there.

    From the more than 40 meters high tower you had a good view of the whole region. It lasted only 46 years, from 1899 until its demolition in October 1945.

    The fur tower has an interesting history, which is described on the information board. It's a shame that it no longer exists.

    On a photo you can see the view that you would have if the tower were still standing today.
    The Aachen Cathedral is at the marked point.
