Tips

  • Anja

    From the top you have a very nice view of Melle. When the weather is good, you can see the power plant in Ibbenbüren from the Ottoshöhe or see Osnabrück as far as the Piesberg.

    The Ottoshöhe with the observation tower is located in the Meller Mountains in the Eickener Egge area. The shortest route to Ottoshöhe begins at the hiking car park on the "Auf den Vieren" road. From here you have the first beautiful view of Melle. With good visibility you can see the Teutoburg Forest. The way to Ottoshöhe leads over a well-developed forest path with steep gradients. From the observation tower you have a wonderful 360 degree view over the Wiehen Mountains to the Teutoburg Forest. Also in the field of vision is the Diedrichsburg tower and the Friedenshöhe tower. These two towers, together with the tower on the Ottoshöhe, are part of the signposted 3-Türme Weg.

    Brilliant view! 🤩 When going down you should be able to handle the lattice steps, otherwise it can be quite an "egg dance" ... 😉

    Nice hiking trail. Unconditional rise to Otto's height. Super panoramic view. Highly recommended is the weavers house to stop at the end of the tour. 👍😃

    There is a very beautiful lookout tower on the Ottoshöhe. From the top we have a wonderful distant view that extends in the north to the Wiehen Mountains and in the south to the Teutoburg Forest. There is a shelter below and several benches with tables for visitors.

    Nice view over the Osnabrück region, at a height of 24m. In good weather you have a view of about 20 km.

    Addition to the tip with the dogs in the wildlife park: Today we were in the middle of a tour in front of a closed passage in the fence. Make sure that tours only go through the main gates. Otherwise you'll be stupid ...

    The observation tower on the Ottoshöhe is one of the three towers of the Dreitürmeweg. From here there is a wonderful panoramic view over Melle to the Teutoburg Forest and the other two towers of the Dreitürmeweg.

    The Ottoshöhe observation tower is a 28.5 meter high, covered, wooden observation tower on the southern slope of the Meller mountains in the Osnabrück hill country. The viewing platform is at a height of 24.3 meters.The tower stands above the Eicken-Bruche district of Mell on the Ottoshöhe, a hill on the so-called Eickener Egge at around 205 m above sea level. NHN height and in good weather offers a view of well over 20 km, for example to Osnabrück, Bielefeld, to Porta Westfalica or to the Ibbenbüren power plant.The tower is already the fourth at the same location. After the years 1895, 1924 and 1967, the viewing tower was rebuilt in 2008 for the fourth time. Thanks to the efforts of the Beautification and Tourist Office Melle-Mitte (VVV) headed by Chairman Hermann Kuipers, the viewing tower was reopened on June 14, 2008 in an official inauguration ceremony. Thanks to the good cooperation with the city of Melle, the 170,000-euro project was able to succeed as planned, with institutions, organizations, companies and private individuals contributing to the financial support. The project was originally planned for five years, but was completed within three years.

    A super beautiful and high lookout tower. From the top you have a 360° view of the surrounding area over the treetops.

    Unfortunately, it cannot be examined from the height at the moment ... but will be made up for
