    In time for Pentecost 2015, the lookout tower on the Calvary Chapel was handed over to him on the edge of Kitschenrain near Thurndorf. The futuristic building stands at 643 meters altitude on the European watershed and was therefore also funded by the EU. Visitors can enjoy the panoramic view, but the climb also requires some courage.

    The architecture of the tower impresses: The structure consists of a framework with three pillars around which the staircase winds. The triangular shape is repeated at the intermediate platforms and the viewing platform at about 25 meters above the ground.
    From the top you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the Fichtelgebirge and the Franconian Switzerland. For guidance, there are hints on the platform all around what you can see in that direction.

    Great view to Sulzbach-Rosenber and Amberg, on to Ossinger and on the other side to Ochsenkopf and Rauhen Kulm
