Bismarck Tower is a nice and in my opinion a lovely little unique tourist attraction that is not to far out of the main tourist attraction's and is well worth the little adventure up here. We popped up late morning as the brewpub we had planned to visit was not open yet and it was well worth it. The tower... More

You won't regret the hike up to this tower. The view is unbeatable. You are totally surrounded by the woods and when I went there was not a soul in sight - so very quiet and relaxing.

The stairs are little narrow and steep and the lighting is non-existent during day time typical... More

It offers a great view of the river below, Heidelberg across the... More

Enjoyed venturing off the main path of Philosopher's Way to find the tower. Glad we did. The entrance was open and we climbed the stairs to the top to discover an incredible view. As another reviewer mentioned, similar view to what you get on Philosopher's Way; howoever, a bit off the beaten path with a small fountain/water spout just below... More

Not much there except the view. If you walk up to the Philosopher's Walk you will see the same view. But if you have gone that far and want to explore a bit more, it isn't too far away.
