  • The scenery during the hike is nice. We liked the route from the Schwabentor and it takes about 40 minutes to get up to the tower, definitely worth it. Stop by the restaurant for a beer with a view!  more »

  • Beautiful place! Schlossberg tower is 35mt high and you can join the view of the city from there. Of course to get to the tower, a walk in the forest is recommended.
  • Magnificent and marvelous mountain right in the heart of the city.
