Beautiful medieval lookout point over the medieval town of Bad Wimpfen. The view is especially stunning at night during the Christmas Market weekends. Don't miss it, when you visit the Market!

A very nice tower in the middle of the small town. It is very old and you may enter. There are several stairs leading up to a view point.

The Blauer Turm was especially dramatic since we saw it in the evening as it was described by the "night watchman", the Nacht Waeckter. However, this review is really about a local "Wimpfenite" who went out of her way to help two desperate American tourists....More
