Kranichsberg with its observation tower is situated high above the lock. From the “Liebesquelle” (“Source of Love”) – now no more than a trickle – there is a steep 15 to 20-minute climb that is like high-altitude hiking. So you will need some stamina here. But there is now a slightly less strenuous way of climbing Kranichsberg. From the street called An der Maiwiese, where there is a car park, even senior citizens can easily manage the climb up to the observation tower.

The first observation tower was built in 1886 by the friends’ association Verschönerungsverein Kranichsberg, founded in 1884. But the 18-metre high Kronprinz-Friedrich-Turm was destroyed by fire in the last days of the war in 1945. It was not until 1962 that a new tower was built. It now rises to a height of 25 metres and stands on the top of Kranichsberg, which is 102 metres above mean sea level. From 1976 onwards, the observation tower was used by the Stasi (East German state security) as a transmission tower, so it was not accessible to the public again until 1990.

For a small fee, anyone can climb up the wooden stairs for a view stretching far across the forests and lakes of Berlin and Brandenburg. If visibility is good, day trippers can see the Wachtelturm in Hennickendorf and the Berlin television tower. There is a permanent exhibition inside the tower providing information on the site’s history – after all, nearly 50 films were shot in Woltersdorf, including The Mistress of the World and The Indian Tomb. Unfortunately, Brandenburg's answer to Hollywood failed to survive the global economic crisis and world war.

The base of the wooden tower is decorated with graffiti images by Woltersdorf youth.
