    The Juxkopf is 533.1 m above sea level. NHN the second highest elevation of the Löwensteiner mountains in the natural area Schwäbisch-Franconian forest mountains in Baden-Württemberg. On the mountain are the Juxkop tower and the attached hiking center of the Swabian Albverein.
    The lower Jurassic dome of the Juxkopf in the southern Löwensteiner mountains on the southwestern edge of the Swabian-Franconian forest mountains is located about 700 meters northwest of the center of the district of Spiegelberg Jux in Rems-Murr-Kreis. The west of the valley axis of the Lauter between their right tributaries Senzenbach and Winterlauter with its free location overlooking the surrounding mountain offers a very good panoramic view of the surrounding Löwensteiner mountains, the Stromberg in the west, the northern Black Forest in the southwest and the closer in the arc from south to north lying other mountain landscapes Murrhardter forest and finally Mainhardter forest of the Swabian-Franconian forest mountains, behind which rises in the southeast of the Albtrauf.
    1882: Construction of the first lookout tower.
    1902: The tower is demolished because of dilapidation and replaced by a new tower.

    Over the Juxkopf, the Georg-Fahrbach-Weg of the Swabian Albverein runs on the stage between Wüstenrot and Sulzbach an der Murr. Several local hiking trails pass through the mountain.

    Was there on Good Friday and can confirm that the tower is open on Sundays and public holidays. The small hut next door also offers drinks and cakes. During the winter months the tower remains closed.
