    The 34 m high Friedrichsturm on one of the highest elevations of the region (1,002 m) was built in 1891. The memorial stone located about 1 km away on the trail to Herrenwieser See commemorates Philipp Bussemer, one of the founding fathers of the Baden-Baden local group of the Black Forest Association.

    From the tower, the hiker can enjoy the enchanting view over the forests of the northern Black Forest and across the Rhine plain to the Vosges in clear weather. After a comprehensive renovation, which the Schwarzwaldverein Baden-Baden e.V. carried out with the help of many donations, the tower has been accessible again since May 2003.

    The Friedrichsturm was built in 1899 as a gift from the citizens for the 300th anniversary of the city. Since then he has attracted both locals and tourists as he offers a beautiful view of the city and the surrounding area.

    The tower is open from May to October.

    Great for an overview of the location Freudenstadt on the edge of the Black Forest. May be closed in winter, depending on snow.

    A delicious cappuccino, a delicious pumpkin soup, or a delicious cake of the day you get in the design-oriented Café Friedrichsturm.

    If you are not too tired from the hike through the forest, you can climb the Friedrichsturm and get a good view of Friedrichstadt and its structure. In the design as a Mühlenspiel constructed, as can be read in the description.

    The ascent to the 25 m high Herzog-Friedrich-Turm is absolutely recommendable, because from above there is a wonderful panoramic view of Freudenstadt, towards the Swabian Alb and the extensive forests and mountain ridges of the Black Forest.
