    Grand Duke Nikolaus Friedrich Peter built the tower for his wife Elisabeth von Sachsen-Altenburg, which he also named after her. Ten years later the tower was overgrown with the surrounding trees - there was nothing left to see. Without further ado, the tower was raised by four meters. Now the view was limitless again. But another ten years later the tree tops were in the way again. Then they were cut off without further ado.

    The tower, built in 1863-64, was newly renovated and offers a great view of Holstein Switzerland, the Baltic Sea and, if the weather is good, even the Danish coast.
    The colorful panes are also beautiful.
    Entry is free.

    Originally built by the Grand Duke Nikolaus Friedrich Peter for his wife Elisabeth in order to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature, the trees soon grew taller than the tower, so that it was increased by four meters as early as 1875. When the trees again threatened to tower over the tower, they were cut short so that it looked as if the tower had grown again. And so the fairy tale of a grown tower struggled for a long time around the walls. Although it has actually been open to visitors again since 2017, the tower could not be climbed during our visit due to the corona protection regulations, so we unfortunately could not relate to the legendary view.

    From the lookout tower from the 19th century you have a good overview of the café and the small water landscape.

    The 179 m high telecommunications tower is accessible free of charge and offers a beautiful viewing platform. The ascent to the viewing terrace on the Bungsberg is only possible via stairs, but the effort is worth it, because the wide view over the hilly landscape of Holstein Switzerland to the Baltic Sea is simply fantastic.malente-tourismus.de/holsteinische-schweiz/ausflugsziel/bungsberg

    In the shadow of the telecommunications tower stands the 150-year-old, listed Elisabeth Tower. The fairytale-like tower is about 22 meters high and stands out due to its octagonal shape. The Elisabeth Tower was named after Elisabeth von Sachsen-Altenburg, whose husband (the Oldenburg Grand Duke Nikolaus Friedrich Peter) had the tower built in 1863 and 1864.
    After a long renovation, it is now accessible again free of charge. The climb is worth it - from the top you have fantastic views in all directions.
