The Ochsenkopf Transmitter (German: Sender Ochsenkopf}) is a 163 metre tall radio and TV tower of reinforced concrete, which was built in 1958 as replacement for a 50 metre tall guyed steel tube TV mast, which collapsed in January 1958 as result of icing, on the summit of the 1024 metre high Ochsenkopf mountain, the second highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge mountain chain in Northern Bavaria, Germany. Ochsenkopf TV Tower, which is not accessible for tourists, has a characteristic hyperbolic shaped basement, in which are 5 floors with technical equipment. Above it, there are platforms for directional antennas. The antennas for FM-transmission are on the upper part of the concrete tower, that for TV transmission on a steel tube mast on the top.
