How can different weather conditions affect your visit?
In extreme situations, e.g. strong winds, hurricanes, ice formation etc., the outer ring of the platform can be blocked for safety reasons, if necessary the entire tower. We want to ensure maximum safety for our visitors at all times. Experience has shown that even weather conditions with rain can involve lovely views. However, we are unable to make any precise forecasts. These are subjective assessments anyway. People assess corresponding situations differently.

Rottweil as a location

Why was Rottweil chosen?
Our elevator plant in Neuhausen a.d. Fildern means that we feel we have a close relationship with Baden-Württemberg. The central location not far from this site, the integration in the high-tech belt all around Stuttgart, the political support from Lord Mayor Broß and the town council, as well as the broad acceptance among the population were decisive for Rottweil.
Why not have a tower in Neuhausen a.d. Fildern?
The thyssenkrupp elevator plant in Neuhausen a.d. Fildern is 75 kilometres away. The construction of such a tower there is not possible owing to the proximity of Stuttgart Airport
How has the town skyline changed?
The historical town skyline of Rottweil remains unchanged, as the planned enclosure is around 1.5 kilometres away from the old town.
