The 25 m high wooden tower, which was ceremoniously opened in May 2004 and is considered a tourist highlight not only in the district of Mayen-Koblenz, has visitors from near and far.
The wood-built observation tower stands on the 557 meter high "Schneeberg" in Boos. From the observation deck you can enjoy a panoramic view over the nearby Eifel landscape with its extinct volcanic cones up to Westerwald and Hunsrück.
In the surrounding area you can see u.a. the ruin of the Nürburg (678 m) with the world-famous Nürburgring, the "Kaiser Wilhelm Tower" on the Hohe Acht (747 m) and the Hochkelberg (675 m).
