    On the summit region, a telegraph station was allegedly set up after the 1794 French Revolution, part of the Paris-Metz-Landau chain. The station was abandoned after the transition of the Palatinate to Bavaria in May 1816. According to French sources, this line was planned, but was never built because of lack of funds.From August to September 1879, the scarcely 9 m high Hohenberg tower was built on the summit of the beautification associations Annweiler and Landau. The observation tower was built like a conical pyramid in dry construction and completed on 16 October 1879. The inside of the tower was essentially made of rubble. A staircase led up to the viewing platform on the west side of the tower.In the 1960s, due to age, the first stones on the tower dissolved and in 1970 the eastern part of the tower slid off. In 1971, DM 30,000 was invested in the construction of motor vehicle routes and the restoration of the tower.In 2002 and October 2007, parts of the tower collapsed again. The tower was blocked and a fence prevented entering the tower remains. The municipalities of Birkweiler and Annweiler-Queichhambach were able to start rebuilding in 2018 with the support of EU funding. On the occasion of the organized by the fire brigade Birkweiler Hohenberg Festival, the tower was reopened on 1 May 2019.
