    The Herzberg Tower is a popular destination for cyclists and hikers. Comparable to the neighboring Saalburg, the tower owes itself to the interest of Kaiser Wilhelm II, who was enthusiastic about antiquity: he encouraged the Taunus Club to build a lookout tower there. In order to appreciate the proximity of the Limes and the Roman fort, the shape of the tower was modeled on a Roman Limes watchtower.

    The view from the tower is great! Costs € 0.50
    The restaurant with the outside terrace is good!

    Great panoramic view, relatively short ascent and entry fee. The tower closed on Monday.

    The foundation stone for the Herzberg Tower was laid on July 20, 1910. For this purpose, a 70 x 20 cm certificate with a picture of the tower and the emperor's handwritten signature with the word "Approved" was walled into the eastern corner of the tower. On June 30th, 1911 the building was inaugurated with fanfares from the tower, songs from a male choir and speeches.
    With a height of 24.5 m, built from Taunus quartzite boulders, a wooden roof made from Taunus oak and a 6.60 m x 6.60 m viewing platform, it is enthroned here as a direct competitor of the Feldberg plateau. The lower third of the tower height was covered with a massive protective shed with earth fill. The path to the circular viewing platform leads over 110 steps
