The “Meurostolln” observation tower was constructed in 2003 on the grounds of a former briquette factory. 144 steps lead up to the 27-metre-high viewing platform. The tower stands on an elevation and provides a view of the surrounding landscape, in particular the Lausitzring, the bucket wheel excavator landmark, the Meuro solar park, the Klettwitz wind park, and Senftenberg with its lake. On especially clear days it is possible to see the power stations in Schwarze Pumpe and Boxberg.
The tower was constructed using galvanised steel and is meant to recall the Hörlitz water tower that stood on this site until 1965.
The observation tower is closed if large events are planned (more than 20,000 spectators expected) at the Lausitzring.
