    The Rösberg water tower was built by the British at the highest point in Rösberg on the main terrace of the Ville in 1919 and provided the Rösberg population with fresh water until the 1970s.

    Always seems a bit bizarre in the landscape, I think, but good😜

    The shaft of the water tower was built from field fire bricks on a round base and is conical. The shaft is enclosed by wall templates that widen upwards and are arcade-shaped. They support the load of the overlying water tank, which is constructed according to the intze principle and is enclosed by an octagonal and partially slated part of the building. The slated tent roof is adorned with a weather vane.Today there are two apartments in the striking building. The upper apartment is accessed via an external spiral staircase with 100 steps that overcome thirty meters in altitude (Welt am Sonntag 2006). Another special feature of the upper apartment is that the 100,000 liter former water tank had to be integrated into the living concept due to the monument protection that has existed since 1986 (Rhineland Nature Park).
