    The tower is already the third building at this point: The first previous building was built in 1882. It was demolished in 1902 because of dilapidation and replaced by a new tower. Today's tower was built in 1932 as a closed timber construction on a concrete foundation. Until 2008 he was looked after by the local group Besigheim of the Swabian Alb Association; since then he has been in the care of the local group Juxkopf.
    In 1936, the spartan Juxkopfhütte hiking home with 20 beds was built next to the tower; today the hiking home is open on Sundays and public holidays from April to October.
    The platform of the Juxkopfturm located at a height of 18 meters offers a view of the Swabian-Franconian forest mountains. It also falls in the valleys of Jagst, Lauter, Neckar and Rems. You can also see the Stromberg (476.6 m) in the west and the northern Black Forest in the southwest. To the east, in the Mainhardt Forest, you can see the Großerlach telecommunications tower on the Hohen Brach (586.4 m; highest elevation in the Swabian-Franconian Forest). In the southeast you can see the Hagberg (585.2 m) with the Hagberg tower. Looking south-south-west to south-east you can see the Swabian Alb.

    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.

    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.

    Varied tour through the forest and past fields and meadows. The ascent in the blade is definitely not suitable for prams. The signposts are sometimes difficult to find, but mostly well signposted.

    Wonderful heights with great views in different directions (Prevorst, Sulzbach) - Juxkopturm with 553 m is unfortunately closed during the Corona period, but the observation benches still lure in front of it.

    We have hiked here for the second time now. The first time we got the key from the inn and were able to enjoy the really grandiose view.
    The link for further information has already been posted here several times - for whatever reason. ;-)

    Now we've been here 3 times and we're still thrilled. This time there was a lot going on. Some day trippers, but also some directly from the nearby village, who used the slope there for tobogganing!

    Unfortunately currently closed ... but hopefully not for much longer.

    Has anyone actually discovered the spelling mistake on one of the signs on the tower?

    The tower, which was built in 1932 by the Swabian Alb Association in wood on a concrete base, is already the third tower on the free crest of the Juxkopf. Immediately next to the tower is a non-managed accommodation hut and a snack bar, which is only managed on Sun / FExcellent all-round view over an endless wave of wooded hills, meadows and fields with homesteads and villages - an ideal practice field for determining with a map and compass. At the foot of the Juxkopf the deeply cut valley of the Spiegelberger Lauter, in the west the view over the wide, flat land of the Neckar basin to the ridges of the Stromberg and the northern Black Forest. In the east, with the Hohen Brach and its telecommunications tower in the Mainhardt Forest, the highest elevation in the Swabian-Franconian Forest can be made out. The tower on the Hagberg with its pagodas can be seen in the southeast. Behind Sulzbach / Murr, the wooded Ittenberg mountain peninsula rises, where the Eschelhof hiking home is located on a forest meadow. When the view is very clear, the chain of the Albberge can be seen from Kapfenburg in the east to Plettenberg in the southwest.Outside the Corona time you can borrow the key for a small contribution in the village at Gasthof Löwen ;-)Source:

    Great destination - always worth a visit. It can be a bit crowded on weekends.

    If you are allowed to go up the tower again, you should have a good view in order to really enjoy the climb.
