Best Hikes to Heroldturm
  • Nikolaus.M

    On the wooded slope west of Eschenbach you will find the Herald Tower. It lies there less like a tower and more like what appears to be a medieval castle ruin. It was built by Carl Wenglein, a producer of gramophone needles called "Herold" from Nuremberg, in the first half of the 20th century. The medieval-looking building owes its name to a special needle. The tower is the starting point for hikes on the Carl-Wenglein-Weg or the Salamanderweg.

  • Very nice nature conservation center with several information boards. The beautiful Herold Tower can be found in the entrance area. The tower, together with a "castle wall", forms an attractive ensemble.

  • Tower at the beginning of Wengleinpark. Medieval feeling! Appearances are deceiving, because the tower is not that old!

  • "Rapunzel, let your hair down" 👸 - unfortunately you cannot climb the tower, but still worth seeing on the way to Wenglein Park.

  • Like all the other buildings in the park, the tower is in poor condition and is itself locked.
