The Kaiserturm is a lookout tower on the 477.8 m high Armeleuteberg, which rises south of Wernigerode. The tower was designed by the Prince Stolberg architect Paul Kilburger, financed by the Wernigerode hotelier Edmund Lührmann and erected between May 29 and September 1, 1902 in honor of Kaiser Wilhelm II. The building blocks are mainly from the Königsberg Quarry near Schierke. In 1992 the 12 m high tower was completely renovated and made accessible again.
The view from the tower extends to the northern Harz up to Brocken, the Büchenberg and the Harburg. Particularly striking is the view to Wernigerode with the castle Wernigerode.
Since 2014, the Kaiserturm as Rapunzelturm is the end of the Wernigerode Fairytale Trail, which runs from the Hasseröder Ferienpark to the Armeleutepark. (Source: Wikipedia)
