Remelturm

The Remel tower is an eight-metre-high tower. It sits 832 metres above sea level between the Swiss commune of Kleinlützel and the French commune of Wolschwiller. It was erected in 1901.  

Built in 1901, the Remel tower served as a lookout post for Kleinlützel during the First World War. The area was a strategically central one during both World Wars, as it was feared battles would take place there between the opposing German and French sides, thus violating Swiss territory.
The newly renovated Remel tower can be climbed easily via a secure ladder. On a clear day, you can behold the Alpine range from Glarnerland to the Jura.
