Wieża Górnośląska

The building erected in 1911 on the territory of the current International Fair and had 52 meters. The architect was Hans Poelzig. During World War II it was destroyed and in 1947 it was demolished. A new tower was built in 1955 on the basis of foundations and structures.

 Fritz Lang’s set designer Erich Kettelhut inspired by a building from Poznań created a skyscraper visible in Metropolis. Later the sequences from the movie went to the Queen Radio Ga Ga video from 1984.
