Bovenop de ruïne van het Genneper Huys staat een mooie uitkijktoren. Al in de Romeinse tijd stond op deze strategische plek een uitkijktoren. In de latere eeuwen was zo'n toren een onmisbaar onderdeel geworden van de vestingwerken van de burcht die hier stond.

Beroemde personen, zoals prins Frederik Hendrik en de hier geboren St. Norbertus, hebben hier gestaan om te genieten van het fraaie uitzicht op de Maas, Niers, Maasheggen, Reichswald en de St. Jansberg.

De uitkijktoren is te betreden vanaf de Maaszijde van de ruïne.

On top of the ruins of the Genneper Huys is a beautiful watchtower. Already in Roman times there was a watchtower at this strategic location. In the later centuries such a tower had become an indispensable part of the fortifications of the castle that stood here.

Famous people, such as Prince Frederick Henry and St. Norbertus, were born here to enjoy the beautiful view of the Maas, Niers, Maasheggen, Reichswald and St. Jansberg.

The lookout tower can be accessed from the Maas side of the ruin.
