The "Fremersberg" with it´s tower is one of the prominent Landmarks of Baden-Baden and visitors who don´t mind climbing the 144 steps to the observation deck are rewarded with a first class view of the Black Forest mountains, the Rhine plains and the Vosges.
When the SWF (Südwest Rundfunk – today SWR) set up its television studio in Hans-Bredow-Straße in Baden-Baden, a permanent radio station became necessary. Initially, a radio tower was planned right next to the lookout tower at Fremersberg at that time. Aesthetic reasons eventually led to the decission to replace the old building with a brand new radio tower including a viewing platform. In the autumn of 1961 the new transmission tower with a visitors' platform at 30 meters height was inaugurated and handed over to its intended purpose.
