Jested Tower is a 94 metre-tall tower used to transmit television signal built on the top of Jested mountain near Liberec in the Czech Republic.

Jested Tower is a reinforced concrete construction with a hyperboloid shape, built between 1963 and 1968. The tower's architect was Karel Hubacek. The shape was chosen since it naturally extends the silhouette of the hill and moreover well resists the extreme climate conditions on the top of the hill. In the Tower's lowest sections it contains a hotel and a tower restaurant. It serves as a dominant attraction in the city and as a place to oversee much of Bohemia and parts of Poland and Germany.
