The Lanstroper egg is a water tower with steel K-frame and a steel container, since 1981 already as a water tower without filling and out of service.
This tower is visible on a hill south of the A 2 motorway in the northeast of Dortmund, in the district Lanstrop. The nickname is derived from this location and the shape of the steel container, although the tower is actually in the district of Grevel and the container is not egg-shaped in the true sense.

The Dortmund steel construction company Aug. Klönne built the water tower between 1904 and 1905 on behalf of the gas and water works of the city of Unna. Due to the high water consumption of the surrounding coal mines Gneisenau, Prussia, Scharnhorst and Minister Achenbach, the water supply could not be ensured without such a high tank. He also served the water supply of the Dortmund districts Derne, Lanstrop, Mengede and Lünener district Brambauer.
