Nice!

The final(?) design is an improvement to the initial designs, I think. Does anybody know the material of the hull? From the images it looks like glass, but that would be rather expensive for a tower with almost no residents...

The concrete shaft should be surround by a fiberglass hull.

Is in this article (to German):http://www.badische-zeitung.de/suedw...-83147189.html

Ok thanks. I wasn't fond of that lattice in the previous design. The glassy hull may not fit very well into such a small medieval looking town, but on the other hand every large building would look out of place.

Interisting, maybe worth a visit, considering that Rottweil is only 1h20 from me.

awesome to see this is finally U/C!

there's no doubt it'll visit this tower when it's finished since the tower will be just 250km away from my hometown

It is a very interesting project. Does anyone know what would be the economic benefit of this project once completed?

Rottweil...i still can't believe it...i went to school there, a small and lovely mediveal town, famous for its carnival and of course the dog...and soon for the highest tower in Baden-Württemberg...great. Will be there in May, and I will definitely visit the construction site
