Wooden ladders

The Odenberg is a 381 meters high mountain close to Gudensberg, Germany. It is fully covered with trees, and you can find some wild garlic in the northern part. Getting up there might be interesting for archeologists, as there are the remains of two circular ramparts. But for everyone it is worth hiking up because of the wooden tower standing there, the Odenbergturm.

It was initially built in the year 1885 and by that time it was nine meters high. During the years it was extended to seventeen meters in 1984 and to 21.5 meters in 1991. The ascent is steep, and you’ll definitely see the different add-ons to the tower: first you can conveniently walk on stairs, the last two sections can only be reached via wooden ladders. But the views from the top are an exceptionally good reward.
