When it was built in 1969 it was the second tallest tv tower in the world. It was build in the DDR (East Berlin) in 1969, and it can be seen from all over the city. It’s over 300m tall and you can vist the top, or even have a meal in the restaurant at the top.
Gorlitz is a lovely town in Germany; it is the eastern-most town in Germany, and the sister to Zgorzelec, which is the Westermost town in Poland! The Fat Tower is in the middle of Gorlitz. A long time ago it formed part of the city defences, but by now the town gas grown so much that the Fat Tower is right in the middle of town, and it’s not the only tower in Gorlitz; watch here for some pics of the other towers in the town.
