Overview
More
The world's very first television tower is to be found in Stuttgart. For 60 years now the 217-metre-high tower has defied wind and weather. When building commenced, many of Stuttgart's inhabitants were doubtful as to whether the first ever tower to be constructed from reinforced concrete would hold. After a construction period lasting 20 months, the Stuttgart Television Tower was inaugurated on 5th February 1956. It became a prototype that was imitated and refined all over the world – from Frankfurt and Dortmund to Johannesburg and Wuhan in China.

We enjoyed a visit here whilst at the local beer festival. You take a short tram ride and then a nice stroll through woodland, that is well sign posted. The history of this tower is interesting, it' is the first TV tower in the world....More

The view from top is amazing. It is good to come evening and enjoy the cafe below so can see both of day time, sunset, and night time. It is pretty windy on top since it is all outdoor. Be prepared.

One place not to miss is the TV tower. We also ate lunch there and enjoyed it very much. Don't forget to goto the upper level of the tower.

The first European Television Tower to be erected is still functional as a viewing platform for tourists. Beautiful city views are available as you walk around either of the two 360° platforms. On a clear day, one can see the Black Forest of Germany off...More

Went on a Sunday evening. The viewing deck itself is not big but the views are stunning. There is a stairway to the upper deck which will offer unblocked view for pictures.

It was 7 Euros for adults. Young kids are free up to age 16. We were with a large group and I believe they got a good discount. It's very much worth the visit and cost. Enjoy and look forward to the elevator ride UP... More
