Its location alone makes the Fuchsturm (fox tower) worth the trip. Sitting in splendour high above the Saale river, the tower is a popular destination for days out, and is also the site of Jena’s oldest hilltop restaurant, which serves Thuringian specialities. The dining rooms of the restaurant, the Rittersaal banqueting hall and the beer garden all offer magnificent views across the city and its surroundings.
Jenzig hill is Jena’s most iconic elevation, and one of the seven wonders of the city.
