History and Construction

Standing tall in Stuttgart, the Fernsehturm Stuttgart holds the honour of being the world's first television tower. Erected 60 years ago, this 217-meter-high marvel defied scepticism during its construction. Instead of the conventional iron lattice mast, Professor Fritz Leonhardt introduced an innovative concept—a reinforced concrete tower with a circular cylindrical pod. This visionary idea not only revolutionized construction but also incorporated an observation deck, restaurant, and broadcasting technology. Today, this iconic landmark offers breathtaking panoramic views of Stuttgart, the Neckar Valley vineyards, and the scenic Swabian countryside, capturing the essence of the city's rich history and natural beauty.

This popular tourist spot is nestled within a cylindrical pod, housing not only the observation deck but also a restaurant and cutting-edge transmitter technology.
