    The Von der Heydt tower is a lookout tower at an altitude of 274 m. NN in front of the Königshöhe on the Kiesberg, which rises south of the Wupper in the Wuppertal district of Elberfeld-West.
    The tower was built in 1892 from donations (10,000 marks) of the Elberfelder banker August Freiherr von der Heydt and named after the founder. It was built in the style of the German Renaissance after the design of the Elberfeld city construction inspector Schaumann. He is 20 m high. Volunteer towers today allow groups to tour the tower.
    A bronze plaque commemorating the founding family was stolen during World War II. In 2013, a stele was erected with information board with the history of the building.

    The tower has not been accessible to the public since 2008. In 2013, the Förderverein Historische Parkanlagen Wuppertal leased the Weyerbuschturm from the city of Wuppertal and assumed responsibility for the repair of the Weyerbuschturm.
