    One is richly rewarded, if one climbs the 120 steps on the platform: From the lookout tower on the 481 meter high Stäffelsberg one enjoys one of the most beautiful views in the south Palatinate far into the Rhine plain, over to the Alsace, in the Palatinate Forest, with good view to the Black Forest and the Vosges.

    Great view. There are nicer towers. The view, however, is terrific.

    The tower is open and can be climbed. Great view. In front of the tower is a meadow and are several seating areas, invite you to rest. In the immediate vicinity of the tower are stations with fairy tale depictions (eg Rapunzel, Hänsel & Gretel, ...).

    You should not skip the stairs and climb the tower. This view towards the Rhine valley and the Palatinate Forest / Northern Vosges is a highlight.

    It is essential to climb the stairs. A beautiful view of the Rhine valley, the Palatinate Forest and the Northern Vosges compensate or are the highlight in the true sense.

    Beautiful view depending on the position of the sun in all directions, especially in the direction of the Rhine plain / Black Forest.

    You will be rewarded richly when you climb the 120 steps onto the platform: from the lookout tower on the 481 meter high Stäffelsberg you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the southern Palatinate far into the Rhine plain, over to Alsace, in the Palatinate Forest, with good visibility to the Black Forest and the Vosges.

    The predecessor of the present tower, built in 1887, was demolished by the French military government in 1947, as the 15-meter-high sandstone tower also served military purposes. The teacher Josef Knieriemen, based in Dörrenbach, had made the construction of this first Stäffelsberg tower worthwhile.

    The Dörrenbacher were, of course, not satisfied with the loss of their tower: Near the old place built in 1964 Dörrenbacher Heimatbund a new, 21 m high round concrete tower. Almost half a century later, this interior and exterior was thoroughly renovated and embellished. The reopening of the tower celebrated the people in a big, happy ceremony on 1 May 2012, exactly 125 years after the first laying of the foundation stone.
