  • The tower is under renovation... so not possible to visit. Completely surrounded in scaffolding so I‘d say this will take a while! However the hike up the hill was invigorating and we stopped more...

  • We had late lunch at the restaurant at the bottom and climbed the tower afterwards for some fabulous views over the region. It's a strange tower, seemingly pointless, but nice views worth the climb...

  • Quite a must visit for the first semester people in the TU Ilmenau as the myth states that one fails the semester if he doesn't visit it! Hahaha.... But quite a breathtaking view.. Important to carry beer and keep it hot as its quite cold in the winters and the restaurant is sort of costly, but has its own charm..
  • Highest point of Ilmenau. It took some time and energy to reach Kickelhahn, but at the end I felt fresh air and beautiful view.
