Mo to Su from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PMDuring the 19th Century, a lookout tower stood in the eastern section of the town forest. In 1931 a new tower made from wood was erected at the highest point in Sachsenhausen. As this area is supposed to have been a favorite spot of the famous poet Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, the tower was named after him. The building is made mainly from local forest wood. With a height of 43 meters (140 feet) and 198 steps, the tower is the highest wooden tower in Germany. From the top you get a breath-taking view of Frankfurt, the town forest and the surrounding area. On a clear day you can also see the mountains of Taunus, Spessart, Odenwald, Vogelsberg and beyond.
