Idarkopf Tower , also known as Idarkopf Observation Tower for long, is a wooden German lattice observation tower on the summit of Mt. Idarkopf in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The observation tower on the 746 m-high mountain of Idarkopf has a total height of 28.50 m . Built in 1980, the tower was constructed according to a certain kind of specialized wooden frame and was designed through triangular sketch. Staircases are uncountable because of the vast number of steps. The roof, which contains the observation deck, is considered the highest accessible point in the whole area, providing a unique view of the town nearby.
The Idarkopf Tower's construction was both commenced and finished in 1980, specifically built for observation on top of the Idarkopf mountain. Sources prove that the Idarkopf Tower replaced an older tower, used during both first and second world wars as an observation tower and as a watchtower for the German artillery.
