A lattice tower is a freestanding framework tower. They can be used as electricity pylons especially for voltages above 100 kilovolts, as a radio tower (a self-radiating tower or as a carrier for aerials) or as an observation tower.

Before 1940 they were used as transmission towers especially for short and medium wave, occasionally lattice towers consisting of wood were utilized. The tallest wooden lattice tower was at Mühlacker. It had a height of 190 metres and was built in 1934 and demolished in 1945.Most wood lattice towers were demolished before 1960. In Germany the last big radio towers consisting of wood were the transmission towers of the Golm transmitter and the transmitter Ismaningmarker. They were demolished in 1979 and 1983 respectively.

The tallest lattice tower is the Kiev TV Towermarker, with a height of 385 meters.
