The lookout tower on the Tanzplan (Tanečnice)

The lookout tower is located 3 km west of Mikulášovice and 0.5 km from the German-Czech border at an altitude of 598 m. The tower can be reached by climbing 136 steps. There are 136 steps leading up to the tower. You can get to it from Mikulášovice along the blue-marked hiking trail. You can drive to the forest car park, which is about one kilometre from the top.

The eight-sided stone tower is the northernmost lookout tower in the Czech Republic. The first wooden tower stood there as early as 1887, but it fell victim to a storm in 1903. A new tower was put into operation in 1905. The construction was financed by Count von Salm-Reifferscheidt.

There is a drinking water spring at the top of the Tanzplan, which is why a 25 m deep well was dug there. From the lookout tower you have a magnificent view of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and the Lusatian Mountains. You can look over the Schluckenau tip all the way to Lusatia. If the view is good, you can also see the Ore Mountains and the Giant Mountains. The name of the mountain goes back to a legend according to which a beautiful young girl seduced a hunter with her dance at this place.
