Danzturm im Iserlohner Stadtwald Reviews
Good food with a stunning view Jul 31, 2010
The first tower on this spot was built in 1839 as a telegraph tower, on the line between Berlin and Koblenz. The tower was station number 43 of a total of 61.
By 1900 the trees got that high that it was needed to make the tower higher, but due to construction grounds it was not possible.
So a new tower was built with construction materials from the Iserlohn area, and in May 1909 the tower named after Iserlohns profesoor Ernst Danz, was inaugurated.
The platform at tower gives a marvellous view on the mountains of the Sauerland. The opening hours of the towers are the same as of the restaurant.
When we got up the mountain we decided to take a seat on the terrace, the weather was too nice to hide ourselves inside.
First we wanted to have a drink, but while studying the menu we better might order a dinner as well, or... just a cup of soup? Well, considering the time of day we went for the soup as well as a main course.
This was a mistake we found out later.
We ordered mustard soup, and used to the portion sizes in the Netherlands we were pleasantly surprised with a souplate full of this delicious food, full of coarse grounded mustards seeds as well as small chopped and still crisp vegetables. (At this moment we got aware we made a mistake by ordering a main course because the soup made a small meal on its own).
And then came the main course, we did not go for the fancy dishes, simple schnitzel for husband, and fried cheese (sheep) for me.
And again, the size or the portions was beyond our expectations. Actually the sight of it took away most of my appetite, (I don't like it but am used to it), however most people doesn't have that problem.
This main dish was also nicely prepared, and nicely served as well, and despite the amount of food it tasted delicious. But after struggling to half of my plate I could not eat any further, and even husband agreed it was a bit (too) much.
So, very very satisfied we started our walk downhill, (or is that downmountain?) again.
