Fernsehturm Stuttgart

2006-09-09

This is a series of the first TV tower of its kind (concrete pipe construction) in the world.
It got built form 1954 to 56, and renovated in 2005, right before its 50th 'birthday'. Its height is almost 217 metres (with antenna), the upper observation deck is at 153,50 metres height. Since the tower is on top of a hill on the outskirts of Stuttgart, one has a great view over Stuttgart. The height difference of the Schloßplatz (castle square) in Stuttgart to the upper observation deck is around 390 metres. The 'basket' one reaches with an elevator, there are two observation decks, a Cafe and a closed Restaurant. Every visitor to Stuttgart should (if the weather permits) have been up there. But beware! It's really windy up there, and significantly colder, even in summer one should at least wear a sweater.
There are more modern buildings in Stuttgart, that I collected in a slideshow.
