The Luitpold Tower is named after the Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria. The tower stands on the 607 m high Weißenberg. The tower can be climbed over 166 steps and then offers a 360-degree panorama of the top class. The tower is over 30 meters high.

From the Luitpold tower with its almost 35 meters high you have in beautiful weather a beautiful panoramic view almost over the entire Palatinate Forest.
Alone the view down makes you with a fear of heights like me problems, but he is already since 1909 and is so massive that he is without problems for sure so long again. 😉
So nothing like the Luitpold tower and up with you. It is worth it ..

In good weather you can see very far in all directions. There are also some guides that show the direction of known places. For those who are afraid of heights: The tower is made of colored sandstone and does not wobble even in strong winds. The parapet is very solid and also has a railing.
