Visit Rottweil test tower (260m) & old town
PLEASE SWITCH ON THE MESSAGE OPTION AT YOUR MEETUP ACCOUNT Dear Meetups, last autumn Thyssen-Krupp AG, one of the leading lift construction company wordwide, opened his 260m high test tower at Rottweil. At good weather conditions a view to the Alps is possible. While on weekdays engineers test new elevator concepts, the test tower is opened for visitors on week-ends. Now the spectacular test tower attracts visitors from all over the world. I ordered tickets for the test tower with a guided tour. Meeting point will be at 8:55 a.m. at the beginning of platform 4 (Gleis 4) of Railwaystation Stuttgart Hbf. Arrived at Rottweil, we will discover the famous old town of Rottweil. Then we will go (by bus) from the railway station to the Rottweil Test Tower. A guided tour in German around the tower will start at 2:00 p.m. for about 1h. After the tour, we will take the lift to the top of Rottweil Thyssen Test Tower and enjoy the view. At about 6 p.m. we will take back the train to Stuttgart (arrival time about 7:16 p.m. or later). Hint: From Rottweil Test Tower to Rottweil railway station we will take a bus to the center and walk about 1KM to the railway station. Non-Member price: 25€ (train group ticket, public bus, guided tour, admission fee tower) Members of the Metroplitan Club Stuttgart e.V.: 14€ Because of the high demand for these tickets, I ordered (and payed) them in advance by myself . Participation is only possible, if you transfer the complete price to the bank account of the organisator within 3 days. In case of non-participation reimbursement is not possible. Registration process: 1. Register by meetup 2. Within 24h you will get a message with the bank account number (IBAN) for the money transfer. IF YOU GET NO MEETUP MESSAGE, THEN CONTACT [masked] BY EMAIL. 3. Transfer the money within 3 days. Regards, Peter
