Bismarck Tower

 

Due to the corona pandemic, the tower must unfortunately remain closed until further notice and a visit is not possible.

The 31m high tower was built on the Westerberg between 1907 and 1912 by the then just created Bismarck society.

It was an expression of patriotic feelings and a counterpart of the Niederwald-monument at Rüdesheim, erected in 1871. The architect Wilhelm Kreis from Eltville created an edifice combining art nouveau and neo-Romanism. This style became a pattern for similar monuments of Bismarck adoration elsewhere in the empire. Rough hewed regional limestone blocks give the tower a defensive character. Inside an iron stairway leads to the panorama platform which opens to a broad view over the city and across the Rhine up to the Taunus mountains.

In the pre-Christmas period, the Bismarck Tower is transformed into an oversized Advent candle, which can be seen far into the Rheingau in the evening.
