Viewing Tower at Schönbuch Nature Park, near Stuttgart

Nature Park to the south of Stuttgart has been one tourist attraction richer since summer 2018. On the top of the Stellberg Hill at 580 m above sea level stands an elegant, 35 m high viewing tower. Visitors can enjoy an open 360° panoramic view over the Black Forest. The tower consists of eight 10 m long masts made from larch glued laminated timber. The masts fan out upwards and carry three viewing platforms at heights of 10, 20 and 30 m above the ground. A double helix in the form of two steel staircases with cantilevering steps winds around the masts. The client wanted an open structure that harmoniously connects with the surrounding forest.
