Tips

  • Matthi 🧗🏻

    Unfortunately the tower is not open. One would certainly have an even better view from above.

    From up here the view over the large area is very impressive. The ringing of the bell goes through and through.

    "Tower of Freedom"
    Inside, under a bronze plate: earth and ashes from other concentration camps and terrorist sites. The meeting place served the GDR in mass rallies u. a. as a place of self-legitimation.

    The belfry Tower of Freedom is a memorial near the former concentration camp Buchenwald. It was built in the years 1954 to 1958 and is located on the southern flank of the Great Ettersberg.
    In front of the Tower of Freedom is a group of figures in honor of the resistance struggle in the camp; It was designed by Fritz Cremer.
    From the tower and from the foot of the tower offers a great view of the underlying Weimar.

    Memorial what we have already seen across the country. The bell strikes an hourly warning.
