The Gugelturm was built between 1971 and 1974 on the Gugel (998 m), a mountain in the municipality of Herrischried in the Hotzenwald.

A bell-shaped tower was built as early as 1930. The tower, built in 1971, stood on three Douglas firs. These were replaced by laminated beams in 1990.

The tower is 30,5 m high, the viewing platform is at a height of 16 m.
