Büchelturm

Description

The Büchelturm, which dates from the 14th century, was part of the fortifications which were destroyed in the 17th century, originally consisting of a town wall with six defensive towers. Today, the Büchelturm is the landmark of the town. Built on a hill (büchel = hill), the tower stood on the edge of the town and was visible from afar until 1945. After the Second World War, the area around the Büchelturm was heaped up with the rubble from the ruined town. From the tower platform, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Sankt Vith and the surrounding areas. The key is available from the Tourist Information in the town hall.
