The company Thyssen Krupp is currently constructing a new tower for elevator testings with an observation deck in the small city of Rottweil in soutwest Germany.

Link of the projekt: http://www.aufzugsturm-rottweil.de/





One more nice observation desk in the Bayrischer Wald nationalpark close to the Czech Border (Bavarian Forest nationalpark)





The city of Prag has also an observation tower which looks a bit like the Eifel tower and which is located close to the city center on a mountain. From this tower you have probably one of the most beautifulls views over one of the most beautifull cities in the world.

Viev from the tower


And here is the tower which is also intersting but not as amazing as the view from the observation deck.

This is a fabulous picture of the tower (Petrin Tower), great shot with them church spires in the foreground as well.

I visited here a few years ago and you can buy a super little guidebook about its history.

Can anyone identify this mystery tower, it came up on Pinterest but image searches just link back to 'Polychroniadis' or 'Max Pinckers', nothing that gives the buildings name or location.

The height is impressive and the "foot" is ok... but the tower has no clear form, no concise figure.
In addition, the outlook is very disappointing.


And here the very very best

Lupeni, Romania.
