Galvanizing Delight

Pottensteiner Himmelsleiter

For visitors to Franconian Switzerland looking to explore the local area, the Pottensteiner Himmelsleiter should be a must-visit stop. Primarily a radio tower, the Pottensteiner Himmelsleiter is also used as a viewing point – for those who can face its 150 step climb. The hot dip galvanized steel structure is 37 m tall and offers impressive panoramic views of the region.
