Tips

    Despite Corona, this extraordinary observation tower is open for inspection. A staircase leads up and down through the shape of a double helix, which are then signposted for one-way traffic. With the car park just 400 meters away, the tower is very popular.

    Great view!
    Be there early on the weekend, so you still get a parking space.

    Really a nice view. It can be overcrowded on weekends, bank holidays and in good weather.

    You can reach this lookout tower of highway rest stop Schönbuch (driving direction north) well. The shortest way is about 2 km. The pictures of the tower speak for themselves.

    a structurally very successful lookout tower made of wood and stainless steel. Wonderful view into the country!

    The tower hides itself to the last from the eyes of the visitors. The photo shows the view from the base up on the ball, which should balance the vibrations. A tower must be massive? No, best example of this successful tower architecture. Definitely plan a visit

    Nice wide view in nice weather, fluctuates slightly in wind. The climb is very worthwhile.

    A great tower with a beautiful view! Due to the separate ascent and descent, easy to visit even in Corona times!

    The tower is open around the clock, especially beautiful at sunrise when the fog is in the valleys
