Following an appeal made by the German Student body after Bismarck´s death in 1898, the construction of monuments in memory of Imperial Chancellor Bismarck began throughout Germany. The 17.5 metre-high Sargenroth Tower, with two staircases and a platform, was built from Soon Forest quartzite in accordance with the plans of the Dresden-based architect Wilhelm Kreis. From the top of the tower the observer can enjoy a beautiful view of the whole Hunsrück landscape.
