View and visibility

In this case, "visibility" refers not only to the beautiful view looking towards the Feldberg in the Taunus mountain range, but also to the meteorological measurement of viewing distance.

Visibility depends on adequate light, clear air and the observer's eye level. An observation tower is therefore the ideal exhibit for explaining and bringing to life the subjects of atmospheric opacity and weather conditions at the Offenbach Weather Park.





The railings on the observation tower are used to explain typical European weather conditions. In a reinterpretation of the classic panoramic view, the directions are shown with their typical prevailing weather conditions. Schematic meteorological maps are used to illustrate the geographic situations.
