Very confused by this one. I need to give some context for this review. There are, apparently, many memorial towers to Bismark across Germany. I am staying in a small town called Boblingen SW of Stuttgart. I asked tripadvisor app for suggestions of placed to...More

Maybe you have a good view from it because it is located very uphill but is it worth it? It is in the Philosophenweg and I found this path very steep and through a forest, therefore it was quite empty even though it was a...More

You won't regret the hike up to this tower. The view is unbeatable. You are totally surrounded by the woods and when I went there was not a soul in sight - so very quiet and relaxing.
