    The Bismarck Column (also called Bismarck Tower) in Dresden-Räcknitz is a 23 meter high Bismarck monument. It is part of the Bismarck myth around 1900 and the related monument boom of that time.

    From this point you can see beautifully over Dresden. A 158-step staircase leads inside to a viewing platform, from which a panoramic view of the entire Elbe Valley, Saxon Switzerland and up to the heights of the Eastern Ore Mountains is possible in good weather:
    Accessible in any weather.
    There are also benches to sit on.
    Nice place to stay.
