    From this tower you have a great view over the Palatinate. It reaches from the Rhine up to the Strasbourg Cathedral, with good visibility.

    The 14 m high octagonal Rehbergturm on the eponymous Rehberg (576.8 m above sea level NHN) in the Palatinate Forest, is built of carved sandstones and is a listed building.
    The tower was inaugurated after five months of construction on 17 September 1862. The construction had been initiated by a Christian Zoeppritz from Darmstadt, who is called in some later sources "forester" or "district forester". Since the term "forester" used to refer to a forestry man in general, it is likely that the initiator of the tower was the Darmstadt entrepreneur and politician Christian Zöppritz. This had leased as a wealthy member of the estates of the Grand Duchy of Hesse in the Annweiler Forest a hunting ground. The relationships are likely to go back to the fact that the former rural county Hesse-Darmstadt had larger possessions in the Wasgau until the end of the 18th century. In honor of the sponsor, a stone commemorative plaque was placed over the door opening of the tower, in which the following text is engraved:

    Great view of the castle Trifels, especially in Inversionswetterlage or fog, if only the castle looks out of the fog.

    Great all-round view. On the tower itself, you are super fast. Above are many flying ants.

    The climb to the Rehberg Tower is worthwhile. The 14 m high octagonal tower was built in 1862 from the region's colored sandstone. It stands on the 567.8 m above sea level. NHN high Rehberg and offers wide views to the west and south in the Wasgau to Alsace, in the north to the Palatinate Forest, in the east to the Rhine Plain and with good views to the Odenwald and Black Forest. And not to forget: You have a direct view of Trifels, Anebos and Münz from up close.

    To get to the Rehberg Tower, you first have to overcome almost 200 vertical meters, but the climb is worthwhile, you will be rewarded with a great view of the castles of Trifels, Anebos and Münz; particularly interesting in inversion weather or fog, with only the castle looking out of the fog.
