The Dusseldof TV Tower is amazing. For me, it is the most beautiful and the most impressive Television Tower we have in Germany.

The Rhine tower is a salient landmark of the Dusseldorf Rhine area.

It stands at the edge of the southern city center at the entrance of the medium port directly beside the North-Rhine-Westphalian federal state parliament and the building of the West German broadcast.

It is quite young, was built from 1979 to 1982 and has a height of 240 meters.

And it has a wonderful restaurant, which is on the height of 172 meters. The restaurant means of a turning table, taking an entire turn around, which takes one hour to complete. This means that you sit there, eat and drink, and turn around at the same time, getting to see the entire surrounding area while you sit.

The Dusseldorf TV Tower is supported by 260 concrete pillars, each one with a lenght of 11 meters, reaching through the Rhine pebbles into the subsoil.

The port holes on the tower form the world's largest decimal clock. From top to bottom, vertically arranged yellow lights — separated by horizontal red ones — show decades of hours, single hours, decades of minutes, single minutes, and decades of seconds and single seconds.

That is an very amusing effect and I'm sure you will love it. smile


This Rhine Tower has some sort of art, right? Well, there's more art in Dusseldorf. Let's go to the fascinating Media Harbour...
