The Goethe Tower is a 43-metre high tower built entirely out of wood on the northern edge of Frankfurt City Forest located in Sachsenhausen . After the Jahrtausendturm, the two towers of the Brück aerial testing facility, the Blumenthal Observation Tower, and the Linsen Tower, it is the fifth tallest wooden construction in Germany, due to the addition of two antenna measuring stations.
In 1867, a wooden tower was first built on the site, at that time 22 metres tall. After the First World War, this first tower had become so rickety that it had to be pulled down.
