The top section was rebuilt following a lighting strike and fire in 1984. The support structure and more fire protection you see is a result. The whole history of the tower is explained on the displays and plaques inside near the top. (German only) There...More

Beautiful medieval lookout point over the medieval town of Bad Wimpfen. The view is especially stunning at night during the Christmas Market weekends. Don't miss it, when you visit the Market!

A very nice tower in the middle of the small town. It is very old and you may enter. There are several stairs leading up to a view point.
