Telecom & data tower Hilversum open to the public during Open Studio Days

During the weekend of 12 and 13 October the 12th edition of the Open Studio Days will take place at the Media Park in Hilversum. This is thé event where visitors get the chance to take an exclusive look behind the scenes of radio and TV!

Unique opening of the television tower

In 1951 the very first television mast (Netherlands 1) was built in Hilversum. This was replaced in 1973 by the new mast on the Witte Kruislaan. Initially the tower was 142 high, nowadays the construction is 196 meters.

The towers of Cellnex have various functions. For example, they are part of the Dutch emergency infrastructure, they are still used for broadcasting radio and television, they are part of the telecommunications infrastructure for mobile providers and they offer datacenter facilities.

Given the special character of the towers, these are normally only accessible to customers. Especially for the Muziekids Foundation, Cellnex is opening its telecom and data to the general public during the Open Studio Days.

Fantastic view

The view from the tower at more than 100 meters is phenomenal! You can see the Media Park and the nature reserves of the Gooi and Vecht region. And with a clear view, even the Dom Tower of Utrecht and the Amsterdam Arena. A special experience for young and old.

When: October 12 and 13 10:00 – 17:00
Where: Witte Kruislaan 47, Hilversum
Cost: 5 Euro
Tickets: Available at the entrance or at the information kiosk

The total proceeds of the opening go to Stichting Muziekids, where sick children can be children again through music.
