Mountain Biking Highlight
The Eulenturm is a lookout point in the Göttingen forest immediately east of the built-up area of the city of Göttingen in the district of Oststadt. It lies on the lower slope of the Hainberg above the Schillerwiese on a ridge between the valleys Molkengrund in the north and Lange Nacht in the south. The round tower built into the hillside with a viewing platform made of limestone and sandstone has a height of about 4 meters. The ground-level tower entrance in the front area was walled up for safety reasons. The Eulenturm was built at the end of the 19th century by the Göttinger Beautification Association as part of the design of the Hainberg to a recreational area in the manner of a Volksgartens.
