Stuttgart Television Tower – the first of its kind
It took 20 months to build Stuttgart's television tower. On 5th February 1956 it was taken into operation. At that time, no other place in the world could offer such a bold mixture of chimney, tower and Greek column. Ten years later, Stuttgart's television tower already had a considerable number of descendants. Despite its imposing height of 217 meters, the television tower - which has been the prototype of modern television towers all over the world - has remained a giant "en miniature". Real giants among its "sons" in Toronto and in Moscow have exceeded the 500 meter benchmark.
It is worth-while at all times of the year to drive to the look-out platforms and to the tower-restaurants in the upper section of the television tower. There is no other place in Stuttgart like the television tower from which you can have such a wide look over the city, the vineyards of the Neckar-Valley and then over the Swabian landscape to the Alb in the South over the Black Forest in the West and the Odenwald in the North.
