  • Not everyone in our group wanted to climb and one or two were a bit wobbly at the top but this is a really stunning tower in a great location and well worth the climb.  more »
  • It's a fun climb but can be a bit wobbly up the top so if you have a fear you probably shouldn't go up. The view from the top was okay, not the best 360 view ive seen but worth the climb.  more »

  • A little bit of a hike to get there. But very beautiful. Lots of photo opportunities.
  • This a hidden gem. We rode our mountain bikes up to the structure but you can also drive up to it. Very tall with nice views of the countryside. It reminds me of the towers at the end of the Baumwipfelpfad trails only this one is free to climb! Sturdy with good hand railing, the steps have grating that you can see through so if you are prone to vertigo or dizziness this may cause some trouble given the spiral shape of the structure. There is a small wooden structure off to the side, good for sitting in the shade or stopping to have a snack. There is no bathroom.
