Hidden away on the northern side of Bad Homburg is a viewing platform called the Aussichtsturm Ellerhöhe.
It was originally built in 1873, re-built in 1889 and extended in 1901. The top of it is approximately 200m above sea level.
Although the tower itself is only about 16m tall, it does offer a view across the town of Bad Homburg to Oberursel, and even as far as Frankfurt.
In fact, many local people do not even know that it is there!
