    When the tower was built in 1889, one should have had all-round visibility. Nowadays, the view into the Rhine valley is blocked by trees. But to the east and northwest you can see well.

    Strenuous climb up to the tower - as Kauai has already written, the tall trees rob a better view.

    Good rest stop, in good distance the Brug Trifels is watching. But the view in the vicinity is limited by the tall trees around.

    Small lookout tower on the southern slope of the Blättersberg. I found the tower itself more impressive than the view.Addendum 05/2020: Currently in the area around the tower (especially the hut right next to it) there is a warning about the oak processionary moth.

    The trees mostly take the view from the tower.

    The Ludwigsturm is a 15 meter high observation tower made of sandstone on the southern flank of the summit plateau of the Blättersberg in the Haardt, the eastern edge of the Palatinate Forest at an altitude of 604.9 m above sea level. NHN [1]. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Rietburg in the district of Rhodt under Rietburg and was built in 1889 by the beautification club Edenkoben. It was named after the Bavarian King Ludwig I. He is classified as a cultural monument.

    Impressive structure. Unfortunately, the outlook and foresight is very limited by the trees.

    Still a little higher than the Schänzelturm. You can enjoy the beautiful view over the Palatinate Forest.

    An elderly gentleman told me today that this was a restricted area for the Americans 20 years ago.
    And remember, the tower cannot be climbed. A tawny owl is breeding above

    Rather badly or not at all marked by the Schweizerhaus, well marked by the Rietburg. Great view to the Trifels and the Rhine plain

    The staircase is very narrow and you have to be patient with oncoming traffic. Best to visit during the week when there is less activity.

    The tour starts at the Hüttenbrunnen car park and follows the red dot towards Riethburg. In the last section before the Riethburg you will find two trees on the left side that are closely entwined with each other.
