Wilhelmswarte observation tower Dietzhölztal

Detailed description

The Wilhelmswarte - once the landmark of Ewersbach

The Wilhelmswarte was built at the turn of the century by the former local beautification association at the height of the Sasenberg - and thus 442 m. above sea level. It was inaugurated on 12 May 1901. Until the 1960s, the Wilhelmswarte - the name is intended to commemorate Prince Wilhelm I of Orange - served as a popular lookout tower. The building, which was damaged by the weather and wilful destruction, was raised in the early 1970s in a wooden construction.
