    The view from the Bismarkturm over Göttingen into the Leinetal is very beautiful. The Pluto station on the Göttingen Planet Trail is also here. The planetary path does not end here. The previous end is approx. 3 kilometers further in Diemarden am Mühlendamm. There is a stele there for some trans-Neptunian heavenly bodies.

    The Bismarck Tower in the Göttinger Forest is an impressive lookout tower. It can be reached on many different hiking trails.

    The Bismarck tower in the city forest offers a great view of Göttingen, but also in the direction of the Harz you have a good view in good weather. Incidentally, the visit to the tower can be combined with a trip to the Kehr.

    The opening hours of the tower:
    Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 11:30 to 18:00

    Admission is € 2 for adults and € 1 for children.

    In order to marvel at the Bismarck Tower in Göttingen, I set out on the long and dangerous journey from Berlin. And I have to say that it is one of the most beautiful towers of its kind. It was worth it, it is an impressive monument!
