Stuttgart TV Tower (Fernsehturm Stuttgart) was the first telecommunications tower in the world made of reinforced concrete. Soon after its inauguration in 1956, it became one of Stuttgart's most well known landmarks, and a popular tourist attraction. 

From the tower, you can see everything the region has to offer: you overlook vineyards and the Neckar valley, and see as far as to the Swabian Alps and the Black Forest. The culinary offer leaves nothing to be desired either. At 147m/482ft, you can enjoy coffee and cake in the afternoon, or sip a cocktail in the evening. At the foot of the tower, visitors find a beer garden in summer. A few feet underneath the café bar, there is a theatre stage, Stuttgarter Schauspielbühne.

Historical Information

This pioneer of TV towers was inaugurated on the 5th of February in 1956. Initially planned to have a steel scaffold, it became the first telecommunications tower in the world to be made of reinforced concrete in the end, becoming the prototype for many other towers the world over.
