Fernsehturm Stuttgart (Telvision Tower)
Mo to Su from 09:00 AM to 10:30 PMStuttgart's most prominent landmark, built in mid 50s, is the (217 m high including the antenna) TV tower. This steel and concrete structure was the first of its kind. A lot of famous architects did not believe in its stability, but the skeptics have been proved wrong and now Stuttgart's citizens are very proud of the fact that their TV tower served as a model for so many others in the world. Apart from a restaurant, the four-story bucket also houses the transmitters of the South-German radio station. Two observation platforms offer a gorgeous view - as long as the weather is nice, and the surrounding wood offer the perfect location for a stroll.
