Facts and figures about the Siblinger Randenturm

The Chlaggiblick, also known as the Siblinger Randenturm, rises 790 meters above sea level in the municipality of Siblingen.

In 2008, the population of Siblingen decided in a voting process to build the Chlaggiblick tower. According to the plans, this should be completed in 2010, but the completion was delayed due to objections. On June 5, 2013, the municipal assembly of Siblingen voted unanimously for the construction loan. The new tower was planned by the engineering and architectural team consisting of Michael Hubscher, Patrick Birri and Raoul Muller.

From the viewing platform, which can be reached after 99 steps, you get an overview from a height of 19 meters over the Klettgau, the Alps and the Swiss Jura.

The remains of the Hartenkirch ruins can be seen near the tower.

Playgrounds, fireplaces and a barefoot course are available for families next door.

History

The Siblinger Randenturm was built in 1882, was about 12 meters high and was probably the oldest tower of this type in Switzerland. For safety reasons, it has not been possible to climb it for some time. On March 15, 2014, the dilapidated tower was finally demolished.
