    The fire tower is definitely worth a visit! In good weather you have a great view over the Haard, the Ruhr area and the Münsterland.

    However, since the respective platforms and platform are made up of bars, one should not have a problem with high altitudes.

    From Wikipedia:
    The fire tower Farnberg stands on the third highest elevation of the Haard (136.4 m). The tower is 38 meters high and has 179 steps and is 171 meters above NHN. (Https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farnberg_(Haard)#Feuerwachturm_Farnberg)

    Great view! There is nothing more to say .... - but: nice way, the steps (light grid) are backed with metal, for all who can look down so bad 😉 Unfortunately, not all intermediate platforms, for all who can look down badly. As you look better then in the distance - but that's exactly why you climb on such a tower - and to look down. 😉 And the small hike through the forest there is also worthwhile. You can park very close to "Mutter Wehner"

    Great view! Climb up in any case! You can look great again 😉 - and far. It's also an exciting feeling to be above the trees.

    From here you have a nice view over the Haard. The fire watch tower is also not too far from the parking lot at the outdoor pool Stimbergpark.

    179 steps worth it. When the weather is nice, you can see all the way to Münsterland.

    The fire watch tower is worth a climb. I am not afraid of heights but I will not miss something like that.

    Fantastic view; the climb is worthwhile. The stairs are made of mesh and small quadrupeds must be worn for safety's sake.

    great view,
    since the steps are "underpinned", one has no perspective when entering, that helps tremendously those who are afraid of heights
