The Stumpfe Turm stands today as a silent witness on the narrow height between Hinzerath and Wederath, directly at the Hunsrückhöhenstraße (Kreuzungsberech B 50/B327) and in direct neighborhood to the archaeological park "Belginum". It probably served as a watch and signal tower for Baldenau Castle, which was located in the valley to the southwest. The type of construction and material indicate that this tower and the castle were built around the same time (14th century). The round tower, built of Hunsrück slate, has a diameter of 6 m and is about 10 m high. Due to its exposed position, one could look far over the landscape from here. Since Baldenau Castle was the border fortress of the Electorate of Trier, the watch and signal tower had an important function. Evidence of a tunnel connection between the watchtower and the castle has not been confirmed to this day. If there was a tunnel, it would not have reached the castle. Tunneling under the moat of the castle was not possible at that time.
