    The Heuchelberger Warte is a former watchtower in the district of Heilbronn, which today serves as a lookout tower. It is located at 315 m above sea level. NN at the eastern tip of the mountain range Heuchelberg and allows a view over large parts of the Württemberg Unterland. The slim, round tower was built in 1483 under the Württemberg Count Eberhard in beard. He served as the western terminus of the Württemberg Landgraben, a border wall, which then formed Württemberg's northern border and the Neckar valley between Heuchelberg and Löwensteiner mountains sealed off. Today, the Heuchelberger Warte belongs to the community of Leingarten, where Grossgartach rose in 1970 and whose congregation flag flies on the top of the tower. Immediately next to the tower is a restaurant with beer garden and all sorts of things to do. Especially on weekends with nice weather the Heuchelberger Warte is a popular destination in the surrounding area of Heilbronn. Two long-distance hiking trails of the Swabian Albverein touch the Warte, the Frankenweg (HW 8) and the Württembergische Wein-Wanderweg (WWW).

    The Heuchelberger Warte is a former watchtower in the district of Heilbronn, which today serves as a lookout tower. It is located at 315 m above sea level. NN at the eastern tip of the mountain range Heuchelberg and allows a view over large parts of the Württemberg Unterland.
    The slim, round tower was built in 1483 under the Württemberg count Eberhard in beard. He served as the western terminus of the Württemberg Landgrabens, a border wall, which then formed Württemberg's northern border and the Neckar valley between Heuchelberg and Löwensteiner mountains sealed off. The view offered by the tower over large parts of the lowlands served to monitor the border; the tower did not have any further military function. When Württemberg extended to the north in 1805, the ditch lost its importance and was leveled.
    1897/98 renovated the community Großgartach, on whose district the tower was, this in collaboration with the local group Heilbronn of the Swabian Albverein. It was converted into a lookout tower and raised at the same time. 1952 was a renewed renovation. The following year, the lions host Wilhelm König began the gastronomic use of the Heuchelberg with the establishment of a barbecue area in the immediate vicinity of the tower. Soon a first hut was added, in 1956 a catering hall and later a kiosk. The tenant Alfred Schlagenhau, who worked from 1973 on the Heuchelberg, then built the Gasthaus Heuchelberger Warte, which has been extended several times since 1992 under the present leaseholders Wieland. The Wielands also had plans for a summer toboggan run with chairlift, but failed in the Leingarten municipal council. The Heuchelberger Warte was named Monument of the Month June 2004 by the Denkmalstift Baden-Württemberg.
    Today, the Heuchelberger Warte belongs to the community Leingarten, where Grossgartach opened in 1970 and whose congregation flag blows on the top of the tower. Immediately next to the tower is a restaurant with beer garden and all sorts of things to do. Especially on weekends with nice weather, the Heuchelberger Warte is a popular destination in the surrounding area of ​​Heilbronn. Two long-distance hiking trails of the Swabian Albverein touch the Warte, the Frankenweg (HW 8) and the Württembergische Wein-Wanderweg (WWW).
