Unique locations for unique events
Innovation is a key part of what we do at thyssenkrupp, and our 246-metre (807ft) high test tower is a unique reflection of our outlook. The spirit of creativity and curiosity in this amazing, record-breaking building is bound to rub off on any visitor. The special contrast between the modern atmosphere of the tower and its view over Baden-Württemberg's oldest town will create a special ambience for your celebration. True to our mission statement of ‘engineering. tomorrow. together’, we will be delighted to plan your very own individual event at our test tower. We offer a range of venues at heights from ground level to 232 metres, all of which can be combined to suit your exact requirements.
