Tower Run

The test tower has 1,390 steps and the highest public visitor platform in Germany at 232 meters. Every year hundreds of runners climb the top of the tower in our annual tower run.

After the great success of the premiere in 2018, thyssenkrupp Elevator and the event agency pulsschlag organized the Towerrun and, for the first time, the German Staircase Championships in Rottweil in 2019.

The numerous top athletes registered promised an exciting race for the crown in the stairway. Although the award of the German Championships is a special award, the thyssenkrupp Elevator Towerrun is deliberately aimed at hobby runners, ambitious athletes and professional stair runners alike. The 1,390 steps up to Germany’s highest viewing platform are something very special even for the experienced stairwell runners and are a challenge and an experience for every starter.
