Bomm

Embark on a journey to the scenic viewpoint “Bomm” in Kautenbach, where a fascinating tale unfolds – from a resilient sphere standing tall since 1913 to its resurrection in 2014.

In the quaint village of Kautenbach, the viewpoint “Bomm” weaves a captivating narrative dating back to 1913. At the behest of the station landlord, Mr Peusch, the local beautification association erected “eng Bomm” – a spherical structure perched atop a towering fir tree. Serving as a distinctive vantage point, this beacon faced the unfortunate fate of being toppled by the Germans during both World Wars. However, since 1947, it has defiantly risen again, standing tall on an iron scaffold.

The passage of time, marked by the weather's relentless embrace, took its toll on the “Bomm”. In the late nineties, it succumbed to the elements, collapsing under the weight of history. Despite its demise, the spirit of “Bomm” lived on in the hearts of the community.

Although the field name “Op der Bomm” might not be etched in records, the square where this iconic sphere once stood has long been referred to as “auf der Bomm”. Perhaps, when viewed from Kautenbach, the square's layout resembling a large hemisphere influenced its colloquial name. In a nod to its storied past, the Syndicat d'Initiative, in collaboration with the municipality, undertook the noble task of resurrecting the “Bomm”. Since 2014, a new “Bomm” graces the landscape, a symbol of continuity in Kautenbach's enchanting panorama.
