The Torii Tower is a 97 meter high steel lattice tower built in 1972 near Gusborn in Lower Saxony . It is designed as a double tower and bears its name because its construction is similar to a gate in Japanese shrines, called torii . The Torii Tower was made in the USA and was originally intended to be installed in Vietnam , but was then erected in Gusborn.

The Torii Tower originally served as a listening post . The BFBS program was also broadcast on VHF and UHF (Channel 51) from this location. Today it serves as an antenna carrier for BOS and mobile communications.
