    Unfortunately not always up. Just look at the public observatory on the website when it's up.

    The tower is located on the "Three Towers" route in the Hagen city forest area. Unfortunately only open to a limited extent.

    Three towers are close by, worth visiting.

    One of Otto von Bismarck's worst adversaries was also immortalized in Hagen with a tower. Eugen Richter represented the constituency of Hagen-Schwelm until his death in 1906. And as a small swipe at the Chancellor, his tower was built on a higher ridge than the Bismarck tower. From high up you have a monumental view of the Ruhr area and the Sauerland.A key is required to visit the tower. The key can be picked up at the Hagen observatory. The opening times of the observatory can be found at sternwarte-hagen.de.
