The Neunkircher Höhe is the highest mountain in the Hessian part of the Odenwald and the natural area of the Vorderer Odenwald with 605 m above sea level. Its summit lies in the district Gadernheim of the community of Lautertal in the district Bergstraße. The northern part of the village Neunkirchen is named.
On the summit of Neunkircher Höhe, a 24 m high observation tower was built in 1888, which was demolished in a stormy night in 1904. The successor building is the 34 m high Emporer Tower, which was constructed in 1906/07 on Gadernheimer Gemarkung. In the tower is the ‘highest economy’ of the Odenwald. From the viewing platform, you can see the Odenwald, the Palatinate and over Frankfurt/Main to the Taunus.
