Hohe Wurzel, at 618 m, is the highest peak in the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis mountain range and the 2nd highest mountain near Wiesbaden, Hesse, Germany. A 133m reinforced concrete telecommunications tower is located on the peak, which supplies the Rhine Main area and other locations with digital television service. DAB and UKW sound broadcasts also originate from this tower.
In 1883 the Gustav Vietor Tower was built on the peak. It was last used for amateur radio purposes. The tower was demolished in March 2006.
Hohe Wurzel is located in the Rhine Taunus Nature Park.
