    The tower stands on one of the highest elevations in Gera. This gives you a very good view of the southern part of Gera. Highly recommended 👍🏻

    The 21 m high tower is 1874-1875 by the mineralogist Dr. med. Moritz Rudolf Ferber were built. Since 1948 it is a restaurant. From the tower you have a beautiful view over Gera, just ask in the restaurant.

    The Ferberturm is 21 meters high and can be climbed. One looks at parts of Gera and the other to the east (airfield and Ronneburg).

    From 1828 to 1875, Moritz Rudolph Ferber was technical director of the Gera textile company Morand & Co. In 1833 he installed the first steam engine in Gera and in 1839 set up the first steam dyeing shop in Gera. He had the Ferberturm built in 1874/75. Ferber died on August 28, 1875 in Gera. On September 23, 1874, a street below the Ferberturm was named "Ferbers Anbau". On September 1, 1960 the street was renamed after the communist gymnast Otto Thomas (January 8, 1872 - December 11, 1945). From March 1, 1991 it was "Ferbers cultivation" again.
