Tips

  • ...Martin...

    If you go hiking around Jena, you shouldn't miss the Fuchsturm. It is easy to reach if, for example, you start your tour from the parking lot at Steinkreuz. The tower itself can be climbed free of charge and from its top you can enjoy an excellent view of Jena.

    Just a tower. I found the view more interesting.

    Anyone who has managed the steep ascent from Ziegenhein can rest up here and strengthen themselves with delicious food and drink.

    The view from the Fox Tower is highly recommended. Likewise the absolutely delicious food in the restaurant, there is very tasty home-style cuisine at very moderate prices ;-)

    The Fox Tower is always worth a visit! At sunset the view is wonderful 👍
    Oh yes: try the Fuchsturm beer. White with a shot is always a requirement for us 😁🍺

    I really enjoy being up here, always a pleasure to look down the valley. And the inn is very good too. ;-)

    One of Jena's seven wonders.
    Always worth a visit because of the great view over the city and the Saale valley, the beer garden and the delicious food.

    Once you are up there you have a wonderful view of and over Jena. Even better from the top of the tower 👍

    Even if you cannot climb the tower at the moment, there is already a wonderful view from the foot of the tower.

    Worth a trip in every season, wonderful view. Very good menu and friendly helpful staff!
    The surrounding area and Fox Tower itself are well suited for family outings. Nice walk from the P stone cross is recommended.

    Going up the stairs is worth it. Above you can learn a lot about the history of these castles using a hand crank machine.
