    On the summit of Bilstein a wooden lookout tower was built in 1869 and in 1890 by the forestry administration a refuge, which was later extended to an economic hall.
    The tower was replaced at the suggestion of District Judge Bernhard Martin by the branch association Großalmerode of the Lower Hessian Tourist Association from 1890 to 1891 by a massive new stone building and inaugurated on 5 July 1891. On August 6, 1907, Queen Auguste Victoria visited the Bilstein Tower. In 1911, Bilstein was protected. In 1960, the tower was topped with a 7 m high steel structure at 20 m height in the style of the 1950s.
