The Belvedere Tower is beautiful, almost a little enchanted. Despite the steel construction, which was subsequently raised in 1987, there is only a clear view in one direction, otherwise the trees block the view. The fountain director in Nenndorf, Freiherr von Hanstein-Knorr, had the lookout tower built on the Strutzberg between 1850 and 1852 at his own expense, which is why the tower is also called the Strutzberg Tower. A number of wealthy spa guests supported the construction. The Hanstein-Knorr family coat of arms with the year 1852 is attached to the outer wall of the octagonal stone tower. The Idaturm in Harrl and the Wilhelmsturm in the Rehburg mountains, which were built in 1847 in the neighboring Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe, probably served as inspiration for the Chamberlain of Schaumburg.

Great area! Hikers can climb the lookout tower, for bikers there are great trails. Benches for a little break. But please take the garbage back with you

View on the Belvederturm. For people afraid of heights like me, it's adventure. The tower is always open.

As a landmark that can be seen from afar, the lookout tower had a function in the state survey and served as an excursion destination for the spa guests in Nenndorf and the residents of surrounding towns. A network of hiking trails in the Deister was created in the vicinity of the tower. The European long-distance hiking trail E1 leads past the Belvedere Tower.
Due to lack of maintenance, damage during the Second World War and vandalism in the years that followed, the tower fell into disrepair. The stairs inside had collapsed, stones broken out.
The tower was repaired in 1987 with funds from the state of Lower Saxony, the municipality of Bad Nenndorf and the district of Schaumburg and an additional steel structure was added.

Nice tower and good to climb with children.
The view is quite overgrown. But the adventure and the movement counts!!!👍🏼😀

In fact, you do not have good visibility from up there. You can only look in one direction. A side trip is worth it in my opinion anyway.

The lattice steps are not for everyone, but you also have a nice view from the 1st platform!

Great tower, with a staircase. Unfortunately only conditionally suitable for dog paws.
That's why we stayed down.

An easy to moderate hiking trail.
Not recommended on public holidays. Because it's very crowded.
Nevertheless, very nice to walk

In the meantime, a "Bel Vedere" (Italian for beautiful view) is possible again in the west due to the wind break / cutting down some trees

The Belvedere lookout tower, the Mooshütte and the Devil's Bridge are very close to each other as destinations for a hike.

Old and new connected. So that you can look into the distance again.

Endless seeming stairs to the top of the tower are rewarded with a great view

Easy to reach and climb with children, reminiscent of a castle tower!

A lookout tower on the Strutzberg, a 198 m. NN. high mountain in the Deister in the district of Schaumburg. Also called the Strutzberg Tower because of its location.
