The Kitzbüheler Horn Transmitter (German: Sender Kitzbüheler Horn) is a 102 metre high transmission tower made of reinforced concrete on the summit of the Kitzbüheler Horn near Kitzbühel in Austria. The Kitzbühler Horn Transmitter does not have a cylindrical schaft. It broadcasts TV and VHF radio programmes. The tower was taken into service on 12 December 1969 as a combined radio and television transmission facility for the ORF after a difficult two-year long construction period. This had been preceded by lengthy and intensive negotiations with local authorities and land owners.
