    Those who go hiking around Jena should not miss the Fuchssturm. It is great to reach, for example, when you start your tour from the parking lot at the stone cross. The tower itself can be climbed free of charge and enjoy from its top an excellent view over Jena.

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

    I could not test the gastronomy yet. However, the view is nice.

    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.

    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.

    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 😁🍺

    A visit is worthwhile in every season. There are beautiful hiking trails in the immediate vicinity. It is best to leave the vehicle at the Steinkreuz car park and walk the 2km.

    Supplement 29.07.20:
    The whole parking situation at the stone cross and the way to the Fuchsturm is currently being turned inside out ... A lot of technology (e.g. display of free parking spaces), a barrier will be added, and everything will probably cost money in the future ...
    Whites with a shot are no longer available in the Fuchsturm restaurant ...
    And the back entrance to the beer garden was locked on both sides.
    Very bad everything ...

    If the parking spaces at Steinkreuz and in front of the Fuchsturm are actually financially exploited, it is advisable to take the footpath from Ziegenhein.
    It is exhausting only upwards ... 😁😁😁
