    The tower was built in 1863 by the Hanoverian master mason Constantin Nordmann. The stone blocks to the construction came from the quarry "Devil's Chamber" on the southwestern slope of the Deister. He was almost completely destroyed in 1881 by a lightning strike, but rebuilt the following year, also by Nordmann. A first refuge was built in 1913 at the foot of the tower. In 1933, the tower came into the possession of the Hannover Tourist Association, which could no longer handle the upcoming investments in 1998 alone. With the help of the cities of Barsinghausen and Bad Münder, the Greater Hanover Association and the district of Hameln-Pyrmont, these were processed with the help of EU subsidies. In 2000, the connection to the sewer system was made and created a cultivation for kitchen and sanitary facilities. In 2001, Bad Münder took over the tower for a symbolic price and also bought the property in 2002. Since then, a development association has been responsible for the Nordmannsturm.

    The place invites you to warm up at this time and the dirty clothes do not disturb you.
