De televisietoren wordt op 9 mei 1961 geopend door H.M. koningin Juliana. De toren is lange tijd het hoogste bouwwerk van Europa geweest, 40 meter hoger dan de Eiffeltoren. De toren is goed zichtbaar zowel vanaf de A2 als de A12. Rond kerst worden de tuien vaak voorzien van lampen en is het de grootste “kerstboom” ter wereld.)
