Grosser Feldberg Telecommunication Tower

Perhaps the only one of its kind in the entire world, the telecommunication tower on Grosser Feldberg, the highest mountain in the Taunus region of Germany, has a pinnacle built of wood without using any metallic part.

Built in 1937 as a 53 meter tall reinforced concrete structure, the telecommunication tower was made into a television tower for the Rhine Main Area two years later. During World War II, the tower was repurposed as a radar station before it was heavily damaged by bombs and burned to the ground.
