This Tower overlooks Konstanz and when you reach the top of the hill (it stands in a vineyard), you won't be disappointed. There are fantastic views over the city and the Lake. For a small fee, you can climb up the tower- which my husband...More

I understand this is one of around 240 "Bismarck" towers, beacons or columns built between 1869/1934 of which some 173 still survive - not all are in Germany (one's as far afield as Chile) but those in Europe were built in what was German territory...More

I did not find the tower particularly interesting, but the view from that place is beautiful. I think I had to pay sth to get on the top. In the summer there are sometimes parties and bonfires at the bottom of the tower.
