Since 1818 on the east lakeside of Lake Tollensesee in Nemerower Holz the traditional bird-shooting has taken place, which has been celebrated as an annual fair. The restaurants, the villa quarter Augustabad and a spa hotel were already established around 1900 and gave impulses for the incipient tourism. An initiative of the former club for tourism led to the building of an attraction in Nemerower Holz.
In 1897 the city fathers decided to build a viewing tower that was given to the public in 1905. From donations and proceeds of public celebrations, which were organized for this occasion, they funded this building. The 34 metre high tower stands on top of Behmshöhe und allows a wonderful view on the Lake Tollensesee and the surrounding rolling countryside. Even if you have to climb 111 steps to reach the platform, the fantastic farsightedness will surely reward the effort.
The viewing tower is not accessible for people with limited mobility.
