  • You can see it from far away, but the way to him drags on then be fine - as that is always the case if you must walk uphill. In the winter, a kind of advent wreath is made from the tower - with four "candles".

  • The walk from the village to the Castle looked promising, but one time arriving at the top it must be acknowledged that the Castle no longer had much to offer if it is a certain point of view on the Valley and the surrounding area.

  • An interesting castle with an interesting story. It is a very nice castle, although it is quite small. There is quite some information given in the castle about the origin of the castle and the families living there.
  • Beautiful place, where you can walk well. The Wilhelm Tower is a tower of about 37 meters high and the current landmark of the town of Dillenburg in the Lahn-Dill-Kreis in Hesse. The Tower named after Wilhelm I of Orange is visible on the approximately 270 m-high Schlossberg, which rises southwest of Dillenburg old town, and serves as a Museum and lookout tower.

  • I'm impressed with everything here under the ground. Good guided tour. Beautiful exhibition in the tower itself.

  • As I find a nice place on a hill above Dillenburg. In advent are particularly recommended the very tall candles, which can be seen from the highway. A small town museum with the presentation on the war of the Dillenburg Castle, is located here. You can go up the tower to have a better view of Dillenburg and environment. Next door, there are still the so-called Villa green with different presents. Europe's largest Casemates are highly recommended

  • A very nice registry office and a great place to give the Yes-Word. Unfortunately was forgotten in the cultivation of the new staircase, to install an elevator. The Wilhelm Tower is therefore only conditionally suitable for people with disabilities!
