Observation Tower Götzinger Höhe

Short facts

  • Neustadt in Sachsen
  • Viewpoint/viewing tower,…

Steel lookout tower with a far-reaching view

The summit of the Götzinger Höhe, which is 425 metres above sea level, is crowned with an iron tower 25 metres high, which offers a panoramic view as far as the table mountains of Saxon Switzerland and the first peaks of the Lusatian Mountains. Visitors with a head for heights can climb the numerous steps of the iron spiral staircase to enjoy the breathtaking view. However, the effort is rewarded by the rewarding view.

Originally, the Götzinger Höhe was called Achtlindenberg. It was later renamed in honour of the local historian Wilhelm Leberecht Götzinger (1758-1818), who lived in Neustadt and was the first to describe the view and the entire surrounding area in detail. Today, a granite block with a plaque and a watercolour in the restaurant commemorate his achievements.
