Some Steps Away

Einige Schritte entfernt stellt sich der Fernsehturm auf der Waldau so dar. Er war übrigens schon 4 mal Austragungsort für ein sportliches Ereignis - den Treppenlauf. Am 10. Mai 2009 erklomm Thomas Dold die 762 Stufen in 4 Minuten und 5 Sekunden. Dieses Jahr wird es im Herbst wieder einen Treppenlauf geben.
Some steps away the TV tower on the Waldau area is appearing at it's best. It was scene of a sporting event - the running the stairs. On May 10th, 2009 Mr. Thomas Dold has scaled 762 steps in 4 minutes and 5 seconds. This year running the stairs will take place in autumn.

It's beautiful. Mr. Dold sure must be athletic!

I like the radio tower seems to touch the sky, er, babylon haha, anyway I also like the way you have stood right at the base and shot up, interesting angle and something I would not have though of, regards ralph

Just fancy running up that, it would be the death of me.

I can remember when this tower was constructed, it was quite an event (I lived in the Black Forest in those days).

Incidentally, Thomas Dold also holds the record for running up Auckland's Sky Tower (1267 steps up in 4 minutes 53 seconds; the way down took only 11 seconds: he jumped).

I think you should show us a photo of Thomas Dold before and after he climbs the 762 steps! Better him than me!

It looks nice against that blue sky!

You better start your training Steffen, so you'll be nice and fit in autumn to participate in the event.

Love the photo! Can't imagine anyone walking up that many stairs, much less running them!
