The tower, created by an association of citizens formed in 1999, was handed over to the city of Emmendingen on September 17, 2005 and is now open to the public.

The platform is made of oak and sits on six Douglas fir trunks which, together with an upper platform framework, form a pyramid shape. The stairway is cylindrical, made from sectional steel and structural steel fabric, with 240 oak steps.
