A lookout tower erected in 1885, built on a small hill above the ancient sandstone quarries and named in honour of the then King of Saxony, Johann. The tower is - standing on an octagonal base - 20 m high. 102 steps lead to the viewing platform. The consecration took place on 18 June 1886. You can recognize the height number by a red painted height bolt: 430 m above sea level.
From the tower one has a panoramic view of the surroundings of Dippoldiswalde, e.g. of the Malter dam. At a greater distance you can see the Eastern Erzgebirge mountains and the Saxon Switzerland.
You can get the key to the tower in the nearby inn Landhaus Heidehof (see contact).
