Tips

  • Sebastian Gliem

    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!

    The Ottoturm is a must as a starting point. There is a very nice view over the Westerwald. It was built on 17.6.10. , Of the cost of a total of 120,000 euros, the Association took over more than half, alone for the stairs, which were all donated with a sponsorship, came together amounting to over 50,000 euros. The tower is 18.59 m. high. A left-hand metal staircase leads over 102 steps and 15 intermediate platforms to the viewing platform at 17.34 m. The Ottoturm provides a panoramic view of parts of the Siegerland, the view to the Giebelberg and into the Siegtal - including the Siegtal bridge of the A 45 and parts of Siegen in the northeast, Betzdorf in the southwest, churches in the west and Herkersdorf in the south. In addition, the view over to the Rothaargebirge and in good visibility conditions to the Siebengebirge. (according to Wikipedia).
