Bachtel Tower (German: Bachtelturm) is a 60 m (200 ft) tall radio tower on 1,115 m (3,658 ft) high Bachtel mountain near Hinwil, Switzerland, overloking Zürcher Oberland. Bachtel Tower is a lattice tower whose observation deck, 30 m (98 ft) metres above the ground, is accessible by a stairway. It was built as replacement for a smaller observation tower on the site in 1986. On the observation deck of Bachtel Tower there is an illustration with the names of the mountains of the Swiss Alps visible. This illustration was designed by Paul Thalmann from Wernetshausen near Hinwil.
