The Lörmecketurm on the premium hiking trail Sauerland-Waldroute in Warstein offers a uniquely beautiful view for every hiking enthusiast.

In order to get an impression of the area where the Sauerland-Waldroute runs, the "Lörmecketurm" was erected on the highest point of the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park at 581 meters above sea level.

The site is located between Warstein and Eversberg directly on the Plackweg, about three kilometers east of the designated parking lot in front of the historic mountain pass Stimmstamm (541 meters) and guarantees a magnificent panoramic view into the Hochsauerland and over the Haarstrang and the Westphalian Bay to the Teutoburg Forest. The tower has a height of 35 meters and its static elements consist of crossed logs, which were obtained from Douglas fir stands. Inside, a steel spiral staircase leads up to the viewing platform via two intermediate landings. On each platform, one has the opportunity to enjoy a 360-degree view.
