- Observation Tower Baden-Baden Merkur
The observation tower Baden-Baden Merkur is an observation tower on Mount Merkur near Baden-Baden, at 8°16'50" E and 48°45'52" N. The tower has been in use since April 8, 1950 by the former SWF (now SWR) as a transmission tower for FM-radio and, since 1953, television.
At the end of the 1970s the tower was completely renovated and its radio equipment modified. An underground equipment room for radiotechnical equipment was built, and a new tower was constructed, adjoining the older tower. In this tower also an elevator for visitors was installed. Built between autumn 1980 and December 1982, it is twenty three metres high, constructed from steel and concrete, and carrying a forty metre high aerial mast with FM- and TV-aerials on its top.
