Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The tower is only a fragment of the origin from the 15./16. Century. But you have cleverly put a steel structure in it, so the tower is not attacked further and the lookout tower gets in the long term stability. A magnificent view over the landscape worth the short climb necessarily!

Whoever visits the Biosphaerium Elbtalaue, not only expects an aquarium landscape, a beaver enclosure and an exhibition all about the biosphere reserve with many interactive elements, but also an observation tower that looks far into the floodplain.
As an integral part of the overall system, you reach the viewing platform after a good 90 steps at a height of 20 meters. The modern steel construction was brought into the historic tower stump in 2002. The historical substance was least affected by this approach.
The height of today's tower depends on the historical height, as far as it can be read from old drawings. The origins of the tower are likely to be in the second half of the 13th century.
Over the centuries it may have served as a defense and prisoner tower, but also to control the Elbe shipping within sight. After all, it was necessary to collect the Elbe tariff. Today you climb the spiral staircase for fun and enjoy the fantastic view.biosphaerium.de/wir-ueber-uns/historisches-zu-schloss-und-turm.html
