Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Transmission Tower 74 with additional information or photos.
In Wittighausen exists a unique transmission tower. The massive tower supports line 74 of the Grafenrheinfeld-Höpfingen power line.
At first glance, the tower doesn’t look too special. However, the closer you get you will notice that a pathway runs directly between the station’s legs. The clearance is large enough for a truck or even a combine harvester to coast through. It’s one of only two unique pathway transmission towers in Germany. The other is located in Leopoldshafen-Eggenstein.
Know Before You Go
Follow the road Am Stiftshof in Poppenhausen in a westward direction until you see the tower.
