    Beautiful tower on the Eckkopf. Great view! At the bottom of the tower, local clubs host the numerous hikers / cyclists.

  • Definitely pay attention to the management. Unfortunately we were there in the summer during the holiday season and it was closed on Saturday. vg-deidesheim.de/Tourismus-Kultur/Eckkopf.

  • Official description of VG Deidesheim: The Eckkopfturm was built in 1975, after the first tower standing here in 1920 a storm and his successor in 1975, after only 14 months of service, an arson attack fell victim. The observation tower, which was now constructed of steel and was about 25 meters high, quickly became a hub for hikers between Bad Dürkheim and Neustadt. From the wine route almost all roads lead to the 516 meter high Eckkopf. From the Wachenheimer Valley or from the west via Lambertskreuz, the tower, which is run on weekends and public holidays by associations of the municipality of Deidesheim, can be reached on well-signposted hiking trails. However, the "conquerors" of the Eckkopf tower should be free from giddiness: 107 steps lead to the approx. 25 meters high observation deck, from which one has a unique panoramic view over the Rhine Valley and the biosphere reserve Palatinate Forest!

  • One of the most beautiful places in the northern Palatinate Forest! The ascent can be exhausting but it is worthwhile in any season and in fine weather anyway a must! The view from up there is really nice !!! Most of the weekends, the hiking hut is managed directly under the tower.

  • Alone the short way to the old wall in Wachenheim pays off. Not only the development area but the view of the Wachtenburg is phenomenal.
    Blue sky and sunshine make the tour even more perfect.

    The ascent to the Wachtenburg is a bit exhausting, but quite feasible. Once there you get a very nice view of the Rhine valley. If the Burgschänke is open, you can already do something about thirst and hunger.

    From there, go into the shady forest. On very well walkable paths you can go meter by meter to Eckkopf. Once here, only the lookout tower is in the way. If this is achieved you will see a breathtaking 360 degree panorama.
    If the huts are occupied and open, you can also eat and drink here. Portions and prices absolutely acceptable.

    Back through the forest and past the heathen holes, you approach Deidesheim and the Michaelskapelle. Here, too, you can rest for a while and enjoy the view of the valley. On days with very good visibility, you can look deep into the interior.

    The last few kilometers lead out of the forest, the vineyards back to Wachenheim.
