Observation Tower on Háj Hill near Aš

 

Category: Lookout and Observation Towers Region: Aš and its surroundings Town: 

 

The observation tower near is the westernmost lookout tower in the Czech Republic. It is situated on Háj (literally meaning "Grove Hill"), the highest point of the Czech part of the Smrčiny Uplands rising to 758 metres above sea level. The surrounding area was landscaped to create a relaxation park zone in the early 20th century.

The monumental, 34-metre high tower was built of granite blocks and, like the observation tower on Zelená hora (Green Mountain), it was named after German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. Bismarck's bronze relief was installed on the tower in 1913 and it remained there until the end of World War II. Along with the nearby tourist lodge (where the keys to the tower are kept), Háj Hill has remained a pleasant tourist destination to our time. You may admire a beautiful view of the countryside after climbing 122 stairs to the lookout gallery located at the height of 25 metres.
