Ancient Corals and Ith Tower

N 52°5.151', E 9°31.609'

Our rating: 6.00
Overall rating:
We offer you the option of a weekend trip. The length of this route is 4.5 km one way, the elevation is approximately 200 meters. The trail is available at any time, but it is better to choose good weather. You can go in the spring, during flowering, as well as in autumn and summer. We walked at 30 degrees heat, but since almost the entire route runs under the trees, it was quite comfortable to walk. In the summer, by the way, there are also quite a lot of flowers.

The mountain you will be walking along is actually a Jurassic coral reef. But you can see it only from above, here is a photo from the drone.

The end point of the route is the Ith Tower. It was first built here of wood in 1885. Like other similar towers in the region, it was built specifically for tourists, and funds for the construction were collected as donations.

In 1905, it was decided to raise money for a stone tower and its construction was completed in 1912 at the highest point of the ridge - Krüllbrink (439 meters above sea level). The tower is open 24h.

Although not as good as from a drone, you can see the outlines of coral mountains from the tower.

This, by the way, is a good example for everyone who wants to attract tourists, but does not have any historical or cultural places in their region. Make a parking, a trail, some kind of end point and thousands of people will visit your region. And if there is still a toilet, information plates and a restaurant, then tourists from abroad will come.
