Description
• Architect: Erwin Heinle, Fritz Leonhardt
• The Fernsehturm Stuttgart (TV Tower Stuttgart) is the world's first TV tower built from concrete (and prototype for many towers of that kind all over the world) and in 1956–1961 was world's tallest tower.
• It is located on the so-called "Hoher Bopser" hill in the southern Stuttgart district of Degerloch. After a construction period of 20 months it was placed in service February 5, 1956, by Süddeutscher Rundfunk (today: Südwestrundfunk – SWR). The tower broadcasts several FM radio stations as well as Germany's ARD TV network.
