The wreath is built on the Aussichtsturm Langscheid. The tower is 17 m high and can be reached via 78 steps. Thus the Advent wreath has a foot of 17 m!
It has a diameter of 9 m and consists of 1793 aluminum parts. The light chains have 6500 LED's. The 4 candles have a height of 1,55 m and a diameter of 40 cm. The actual flame has a height of 55 cm. It was cast by hand (unique) from synthetic resin.
Since 2016, the wreath is erected and dismantled by an IG from late November to early January.
Traditionally, the popular tower blowing takes place on the observation tower on Advent Saturdays at 5 pm. Here always the next candle is switched on. While the tower winders play their Christmas concert in the airy heights, the listeners let themselves get in the mood for Christmas, thickly wrapped up. On Christmas Eve (December 24) you can listen to the concert of the tower winders already at 2 pm.
