The water tower: Living history

Built between 1868 and 1872, the water tower looks back on an eventful history. With an original height of 35 metres, it was once Europe's highest water tower and served as a drinking water supply for the citizens of Cologne. During World War II, the tower was damanged and shortened to "only" 27 metres. The ruin stood empty for many years, until it was renovated and first used as a hotel in 1990. The listed building embodies what Cologne is all about: Living history in a modern, thriving environment.


We want to tell the story of our water tower and aim to bring it to life for you in a creative way. With historic architecture, modern amenities, a laid-back atmosphere and outstanding service, we offer you the we offer you the supreme full package in the heart of the vibrant city of Cologne.
