This is the third wooden view-tower in succession built at this place, whereas the first one was opened on 17 of June 1894. Their building was financial supported by Prince Lichtenstein, the owner of large properties in the surroundings. Moreover, the 25 meters high wooden viewtower decayed and the new tower, having practically the same appearance as the first one, was opened for the public in spring 1834 again. This started already to wasteaway during the war and after that it felt into oblivion. The current design of the tower, produced according to old photographs, was opened on 8 of September 2001.
