The Killesberg tower was constructed some 15+ years ago and is a must see when you are at Höhenpark Killesberg. It’s been a few years since I’ve been at the top and while it only takes you 40 m above ground, the swinging that you experience at the top can be a little unsettling if you are afraid of heights like me.
Now, I like this tower and the experience to go up and down. The view is less spectacular than you might expect given the elevated location on a hill, however. The Stuttgart skyline is just not very interesting. I stayed behind as the others climbed down, trying to capture an interesting photo, but at this time of the day there was no photo I took with the lens I had brought with me worth keeping. It’s possible my 70-300 zoom would have unveiled something more exciting than the rather dull, flat view presenting itself to a wide angle lens. Not to worry: Stuttgart is maybe not a pretty city, but it’s a pretty good place to live.
Much nicer was of course the view that presented itself as I made my way down to meet the others.
