During a hike on the Hiwweltour Bismarckturm, the GAGA refuge offers wonderful views.
The refuge was named GAGA by the Avenarius brothers from Gau-Algesheim, who founded a chemical factory in the village in 1869. The hut is located on Richardshöhe, a prominent vantage point on the western slope of the Westerberg with a view of the Rhine and Nahe rivers.
