The listed observation tower in the violin wood was built by Duke Alexander von Württemberg on the occasion of the peace with France in 1870-71, with a line of sight to Fantaisie Castle. There is an inscription on the tower: "In memory of the glorious peace after the victorious battles of the German army in the memorable years 1870/1871". (Regarding the victory against France in 1870/1871).
Unfortunately the tower is not (anymore) open, as Susanne says. (Status: 03/2020)

Beautiful listed observation tower. Was built by Duke Alexander von Württemberg on the occasion of the peace with France in 1870-71, unfortunately closed today.
Filthy freaks let off steam at the tower and left useless graffiti.

The tower was built to commemorate the successful battle against the French in 1870. From here you also have a view of the Fantaisie Castle

Suddenly this tower stands in the middle of the forest, unfortunately it was locked. A nice highlight on the Salamanderweg.

The view from above is very nice (if you look at Fantasy from the castle you need a while to discover it) and in October the door was still open.

Unfortunately marred with graffiti and partially littered. But the view of the Fantasy Castle is nice. Otherwise the view is overgrown.
