Photographer's Note

It is an 118-metre high (including the 8 metre long spire on its top) construction of larch wood framework.

Gliwice Radio Tower has four platforms, which are 40.4 m, 55.3 m, 80.0 m and 109.70 m above ground. The platform on its top has a size of 2.13 x 2.13 m. For access to its top, there is a ladder with 365 steps.

Gliwice Radio Tower is perhaps the tallest wooden structure in the world. It is designed to carry aerials for medium wave broadcasting, but the transmitter is not in service any more
