    The Iron Anton is an old Bismarck tower, one of the few built of steel. The tower was donated in 1895 by Bielefelder machine manufacturer Heinrich Fricke and built and baptized at his request "Bismarckturm". From the 9.5 meter high platform you can enjoy a magnificent view.

    From the iron Anton you have a nice view to the north and south, so that offers a small break with a visit to the tower.
