    At the top stands a tower that offers fantastic views.

    The tower has probably fallen victim to one of the storms and you can only see the concrete slab it was on. but there are two small stone elevations on which you can just as well wander into the distance

    The new tower on the Finsterberg offers a view over the entire Thuringian Forest. 👍

    The conical Großer Finsterberg, which inclines noticeably to the west at the summit, shows its volcanic origin.
    With the exception of the summit plateau, the mountain is completely forested with an almost pure wool, riding grass and spruce forest; a shrub layer is largely eliminated. A special mountain meadow vegetation has developed on the plateau with Bärwurz, Waldehrenpreis and St. John's wort (Wikipedia).

    The new observation tower is ready. In good weather, it offers a magnificent view. View of the Kickelhahn, the Ringberg on the Adlersberg near Suhl, the Dolmar near Meiningen and the only two even higher mountains in Thuringia - the Großer Beerberg (983 m) and the Schneekopf (978 m).

    To the summit you take a short detour from the summit path up a crisp climb (approx. 15 minutes). You will be rewarded with a wonderful view !!! Highly Recommended.

    When the tower is open, you have a great view from above. With us the stairs were unfortunately closed ...

    A pleasantly quiet place with a brand new tower from which you have a great view. Next to it are tables and benches for a rest and a little further is the refuge with a great view.
