Ladder in the Sky

The Odenwald, the low mountain range to the east of us, sports a new tower. On top of the Tromm (a mountain/hill of 577m altitude) stood the Irene Tower (named after the Princess Irene of Hesse and by Rhine, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria) but the wooden construction was destroyed by rot and bark beetles and demolished in 2020. In its place the new Tromm Tower was erected, a beautiful, modern construction made of wood and metal. It’s beautiful, modern, 33 m high, leaning over the side of the hill and granting a beautiful 360° panoramic view of the Odenwald. It opened to the public in June this year.
