We were lucky to have no waiting time for the elevator. A very windy day, but stunning views. We enjoyed our lunch, good local dishes to choose from. Friendly staff. A nice feature are all the distances given to close and far away places.

Spend some time walking around the open observation decks and you'll get a truly unique view of Stuttgart and the surrounding area. There are small panels describing what is off in the distance in each direction, which was helpful in identifying nearby local landmarks, but also places that are far off in the distance. Overall, a great way to spent... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Fernsehturm with some fabulous views of Stuttgart and the surrounding towns and countryside. Located in a nice area of the city and is a pleasant walk up to the tower. Would definitely recommend a visit for any tourist to Stuttgart.

It is not the highest, but the very first TV Tower. It is not the fastest Elevator, nor is the Restaurant turning around. But you can stay outside on the terrace and from the top of the hill you have a wonderful view. Come early, otherwise it might be crowded.

When visiting any city for the first time, it's good to get your bearings. This is the place to start in Stuttgart. 360° view of the city and surrounding countryside. Small fee to ride up to two observation decks. Snacks and souvenirs available. Ample free parking. Easy to find and access ...it can be seen far and wide

Tower is located on the outskirts of Stuttgart. Can be reached by Subway (plus a 10-15 minute walk). Just make sure to check the weather before you visit.

From the tower you will see some nice views of the city and surroudings. I can't imagine that there are spectaculair views at night because the tower is pretty much out of town. The is a little restaurant just under the viewingplatforms with the same views but without the weather influances. When in town it sure is a visit, there... More

Watch the establishing sequence to Bourne Supremacy and this tower structure becomes familiar. The Fernsehturm is the tallest structure in Germany and is built in what was East Germany under communist rule. The ticketing system is characteristically German. You can buy a ticket at the machine, or at the counter (or online), and you’ll be given a number where you... More
