A spectacular panoramic view from Baden-Baden's highest point
Visit the highest point within Baden-Baden’s boundaries – the Friedrichsturm at the summit of the Badener Höhe. What will greet you at the top is a spectacular 360° outlook – the forest landscape of the northern Black Forest, the Rhine valley and the French Vosges Mountains. Thanks to funds provided by the Schwarzwaldverein (Black Forest Society) and a local organization, the tower has recently undergone renovation work. This striking monument was reopened to the public in June 2004. It has become a real gem and is well worth the visit. The tower is open to the public all the year round. Particular care, however, has to be taken, during the winter months, on the steps and on the viewing platform. The tower is served by a variety of footpaths and trials.
