A local friend brought us here as it’s ‘one of the highlights of Luneburg’ and I’d have to agree. The history of the town is tied to the water tower and vice versa. The Japanese room up near the top is very random, but will...More

This is a very interesting building in Lüneburg near the river. The view is very nice and it is worth a visit if you happen to pass by.

This tower gives you magnificent views of the city. You can take the elevator to the 8th floor for $4.50 euros[ well worth the price]. This is very close to the train station and visiting the Wasserturm is a great way to conclude a visit...More

I love Wasserturms... and Germany is just the perfect country to visit these wonderful buildings. This one in Luneburg is very well preserved and you can go up to the top. Beautiful and amazing!

Frankly, the views are not so good. Both the angle and very packed architecture are the reasons that virtually no landmark is clearly visible. One can appreciate a coherent town plan and selection of building materials. It is the fact that one might learn a...More
