The platform is an excellent way to enjoy the breathtaking views over the Eifel maars.
You will definitely be rewarded with the direct view of the Gemündener Maar, which is worth a trip every time of the year. The place where the Dronketurm is located is an excellent way to enjoy the breathtaking views a little longer and to relax in the built wooden benches and seats. The Dronketurm owes its name to the founding father of the Eifelsverein, Dr. Adolf Dronke and was erected in 1902 to his honor. Dr. Dronke was a Gymnasium teacher in Trier and after the establishment of the Eifelverein from 1888 to 1898 its chairman.
