- Architect: Moritz Gombert

- Schaumbergturm was built in 1928/29 as memorial for the German soldiers, which were killed in World War I. It was inaugaurated on August 24th, 1930.

- As a result of a construction error the structural state of Schaumbergturm got worse by the time and it was closed for visitors. In the Mid of the 1970ies it was renovated, whereby it was partly dismantled and covered with concrete. The renovated tower was re-inaugaurated on September 19th, 1976.

- It contains a museum and an observation deck reachable by elevator.

- After World War II on its roof an antenna mast was installed. After 1956 it was for a while an important FM-broadcasting station, then it got a low power TV transmission site.
