The Otto Tower is an almost 19 meter high observation tower on the Kahlenberg. From here you have a beautiful all-round view of parts of the Siegerland, especially when the weather is nice, and on particularly clear days you can even see the Siebengebirge. The steel staircase up to the tower is a highlight, especially if you are afraid of heights. But the climb is worth it!
