The top section was rebuilt following a lighting strike and fire in 1984. The support structure and more fire protection you see is a result. The whole history of the tower is explained on the displays and plaques inside near the top. (German only) There is a small fee for the climb and access to the walk around the outside... More

At the moment the tower is surrounded by metal structures to hold the tower together before repair, but you can still go to the top. The lady caretaker actually lives in the top of the tower!! Great view!!

Came for a day trip from Heidelberg and lovely to walk around the town and climb the tower. Others closed on Monday as is lots of stuff in Germany. Fairly easy walk to top. Great views and real feeling of the history of place. to sure would do it on crowded day.

I had such a nice day in Bad Wimpfen. It's a lovely town with a great deal of Medieval architecture. I think it was one of the best preserved Medieval towns I ever saw. It's small enough to walk around and see everything in one day. It's very quiet and picturesque. I went on a Monday and the museums were... More

The Blaue Turm is one of the landmarks of Bad Wimpfen and looks wonderful from a distance. However, there are structural problems and at the moment (July 2016) the tower is surrounded with a kind of scaffolding. There is nothing much to see inside. What is interesting is that a lady, who cares for the tower, lives at the top... More

Beautiful medieval lookout point over the medieval town of Bad Wimpfen. The view is especially stunning at night during the Christmas Market weekends. Don't miss it, when you visit the Market!

A very nice tower in the middle of the small town. It is very old and you may enter. There are several stairs leading up to a view point.

The Blauer Turm was especially dramatic since we saw it in the evening as it was described by the "night watchman", the Nacht Waeckter. However, this review is really about a local "Wimpfenite" who went out of her way to help two desperate American tourists. It was after 5:00 PM when we pulled up in front of the hotel after... More

This is a medieval tower with many steps to climb. When we were there it looked like they were getting ready to overhaul it. There were these wooden beams attached on the upper part along the corners. You pay a small admition at the top to a lady that lives there. You can wander around and take in the scenic... More
