Königs Wusterhausen Central Tower was a 243 m (797 ft), free standing steel framework tower on the Funkerberg of Königs Wusterhausen, Germany. The tower, with its unique triangular cross section, was built from 1924 to 1925 and was to have a 40-meter high shortwave aerial on top which would have brought it to a height of 283 meters, but it was not allowed according to the Treaty of Versailles because it would then have had a greater height than the Eiffel Tower[citation needed]. The tower collapsed during the storm Quimburga on 13 November 1972.[1]
