What makes the tower in wooden timber frame construction so special: the triangular platform is supported by three Douglas firs, cut in the Freiburg forest on the Schauinsland. 85 steps of open steel staircase lead you up to the roofed platform.
Enjoy the overwhelming panoramic view of the city of Freiburg and the Rhine valley right up to blue band of the Vosges. From the upper station, you get to the tower in ca. 30 minutes.
Our tip: So combine your visit to the Schauinsland tower with a hike. We have put together our best hiking suggestions under Experience Heights / Hiking. Have a look!
