Weißer Stein (white stone) is the name of a 548 m tall mountain in the Odenwald (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odenwald), north of Heidelberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heidelberg) and east of Dossenheim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dossenheim).
On Weißer Stein is a 20 m tall lookout tower. It was built in 1906 by the members of the Odenwald club. In good weather other high mountains of the Odenwald can be seen, such as Melibokus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melibokus), Katzenbuckel (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Katzenbuckel&action=edit), Tromm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tromm) and Neunkircher Höhe (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Neunkircher_H%C3%B6he&action=edit). Near the tower is the Höhengaststätte Weißer Stein tavern with a beer garden.
Nearby is the 108 m tall broadcast tower (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadcast_tower) of the Deutsche Telekom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_Telekom) AG (German telephone company) and an additional antenna mast. The broadcast tower is a type 11.
