    The Ringberg with the Carl Alexander Tower is 638.9 m above sea level. NHN [1] high mountain in the Thuringian Forest near Ruhla in Wartburgkreis, Thuringia. Apart from some castle towers and monuments, the Alexander Tower on its summit is the only surviving historic lookout tower in the western Thuringian Forest. It offers a good view over the Thuringian forest (with Inselsberg), over Eisenach with the Wartburg, on the Hörselberge, the Thuringian Rhön, the high Meissner, the Hainich and on the city Ruhla at his feet. In good distance, the Brocken can be seen in the Harz. Until 1954, his "younger brother", who built the Karl-Alexander-Turm in 1890 on the Heldrastein near Treffurt, also greeted him. He was dedicated to the same prince. [2]

    Beautiful Zwischenstadtion with many great forest trails. If you come from the direction Eisenach take the 500 meters steep climb.

    To Alexander tower leads a very steep climb. As a reward, there is a great view. From the Rennsteig only a 2.5 km detour, but worth it.
