A number of towers and lookouts at the hillside of Weinböhla afford a fantastic view on the village and the Elbe valley.

Tower König Albert Turm (engl.: tower of King Albert)

albertturm


The tower König-Albert-Turm, which was inaugurated in 1898 and reopened for visitors in 1999 after a basic refurbishment, is not only an attractive and popular tower, but also the one which is visited most.

Tower Friedensturm (engl.: tower of peace)

friedensturm


The tower, which was inaugurated in 1903 as Bismarkwarte, has been called Friedensturm since 1956. The name Hoher Turm (engl.: high tower) was also used occasionally. With its 20metres of height, the tower is situated 206metres above sea level and 100metres above the river Elbe. Wilhelm Wießner, cultural technician and patron of Weinböhla, designed the tower and initiated the building work. Wießner also designed the park Burggrafenhain. The Friedensturm was restored in 1956 by members of the community Weinböhla. Above all, the gardener Schäfer showed a particularly strong commitment to the restoration of the tower. The monument Drais-Stein, which is situated at the bottom of the tower, is dedicated to the inventor of the bicycle. The lower platform can be accessible all year.
