From my hotel bedroom window I could see this tower in the distance about 2kms away. I thought it was a church until I got up close and discovered it was a water tower. The tower is 42 metres in height and was built between 1904-05. It supplied water to this area of the city until the 1980's. When it was first built you could use a lift to travel up to an observation desk at the top. The tower was used as an observation post during the end of WW2 and was lucky to survive the battle that raged around it. The tower became neglected and was purchased from the city in 1995 and renovated to its present beautiful condition. There is a bistro on the ground floor, a banquet hall on the first floor and a restaurant on the second floor.
