The Klemmberg with the Bismarck Tower has formed a prominent point in the silhouette of the town of Weißenfels for 100 years. The idea to erect the tower came from some citizens of the town, who wanted to honour the 1st Chancellor of the Reich, Otto Fürst von Bismarck (1815-1898). The design is by the architect Otto Meienberg. The monument was symbolically opened on August 25, 1907. At the foot of the tower the park on the Klemmberg stretches over an area of about 7 hectares. Due to an initiative for the creation of "Stadt- und Bürgerparks" from 1897, the then Lord Mayor of Weißenfels, Johannes Wadehn, tried to create such a park. Trees and plantations were financed by means of municipal money and donation campaigns. In the past years, a citizens' initiative has taken care of the area in order to preserve this wonderful piece of nature for future generations.
