  • When we visited, we had heavy winds and the experience on the top was a little bit scary. The rails are quite low and the wind could easily push around lighter people.  more »
  • Recommended tourist destination without long distances, reasonably priced, nicer minizoo and restaurant, recommended for families

  • Had a magnificent view over the Valley in the Ore mountains. Great view of the city. Hike is highly recommended, but there is also a funicular which you can go up from the city. The Tower also has an elevator.
