The Fernsehturm (TV tower) of Stuttgart, Germany is an iconic building and symbol of German engineering art. It was opened in 1956 and was the first tower built with ferroconcrete and the architecture received different awards over time. The building is 216 meters high and stands on mountain Hoher Bopser (quite a funny name).
Today you can get there and buy a ticket (for nine Euros) to get up to a viewing platform. Often it is really windy up there but you can have good views on the forests and the city. The city center and the railway station can be easily found. If you’ve had enough wind you can get down one floor and enjoy some drinks or food while watching out the windows.
