On the top of the Kochersberg stood a castle built in the 13th century. It has been destroyer three centuries later and the only relief staying is its past peripheral ditch.
Since the late 20th century, a memorial replaced this tower. Consisting of a motionless reproduction of the arms of such a tower, it can still be seen (within clear weather) from over ten kilometres, making the Kochersberg hill easily recognizable.
