"Otto Andreas viewing tower! About 1 km above the village of Macken, on the L205, a sign on the right points to the Otto Andreas lookout tower, built in 1973. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
After about 500 m, you reach the highest point in the Macken district at 396 m above sea level via a paved field path. A safe wooden staircase leads to the viewing platform of the 6 m high tower. The free stand in the fields offers the visitor an overwhelming panorama over the Mosel valley far into the Eifel and the Hunsrück plateau, which is furrowed by numerous stream valleys. On a clear day, 72 villages can be seen from here. The lookout tower is named after the former pastor of Macken and promoter of the tower construction, Pastor Otto Andreas. In the fall, families with children enjoy flying kites in the open air at this exposed elevation. Directly at the lookout tower, two massive table/bench combinations invite you to linger and have a snack. The Otto Andreas lookout tower is also the highlight of the circular hiking trail "Mackener Fernsehen", which, with its connection to the surrounding premium hiking trails "Burgener Forellenweg" and "Murscher Eselche", provides hiking enthusiasts with extensive access to an impressive natural area."
