In Rottweil is currently being built an absolutely distinctive and unique Building: The test tower for elevator systems from ThyssenKrupp Elevator will be 246 meters high upon completion, and provide the highest viewing platform in Germany at 232 meters .
The basic purpose of the tower is the testing of modern elevator systems for high-rise buildings. For this purpose in the tower 12 elevator shafts are installed where then high-speed elevators and pioneering ropeless systems are tested.
Is interesting for the general public then of course the viewing platform at a dizzy height. Until then, patience is still required, for the completion and commissioning of the tower is planned for the end of 2016. Even now the site is a magnet for visitors: From the platform visitors can observe how the tower is growing daily, as well as guided tour.
