    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 door is always open, admission is free. From up here you have a great view of Fantaisie Castle.

    Tower was locked when I was there in winter. What a shame!

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