The romantic observation tower with a restaurant resembling a medieval castle was built by Heinrich Liebieg.

Events

Josef Schmitz and Jakob Schmeissner were the authors of the project. The building which was realised by Anton Worf in the years 1900-1901 incorporated building material from demolished Nuremberg buildings in order to intensify the illusion of the medieval times. 

The building had all the features of a knight's manor. The building had to be accessed through a bridge which arched over an imaginary castle ditch. The stone gate set in the fortification walls with the guardhouse led to the courtyard with a well and winch. The massive tower dominated the small castle and extended into a palace with a high gabled roof and a balcony facing the courtyard. 

After a strenuous reconstruction which was completed in 2013 the building serves its purpose again.
