Have You Ever Heard Of The Indemann?

I visited Germany this summer. More precisely – Dusseldorf, Aachen and Eschweiler. One day, I was taken for a road trip by my sister who showed me a great place called the Indemann.

Before heading there, I tried to search for more info about the place, but it seemed like not many travel bloggers went there. So here I am writing a post about undiscovered Indemann.

What’s the Indemann?

The Indemann is an Observation Tower located in Inden, a small town in Germany nearby Eschweiler (30 minute car drive). It is 118 foot tall and it’s made out of steel.

The Indemann

It was designed as a symbol of the structural-political evolution of a former mining district. Opened 24/7, it offers a wonderful view of the region.

The place looks wonderful at night as it’s decorated with lights which reflect off the round stainless steel wires and crates the impression of a three-dimensional hologram!

The Indemann has over 40,000 LEDs and it is a symbol of a bright future!
