Best Hikes to Fuchsturm
  • ...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.

  • 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 ;-)

  • 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.

  • 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 😁🍺

  • 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.
