Observation Tower Betzelhübel
built in 2013, the observation tower offers gorgeous clear views of large parts of Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and the picturesque old town of Ottweiler. The tower, which measures 20 metres in height, was built entirely out of aluminium elements. Its staircase is on the outside, with 120 steps leading up to the observation platform which can accommodate 12 persons. Camera perspective: unobstructed view, from below and from above, of people climbing up and down the stairs.
