Road Cycling Highlight
The Wasserturm is one of the landmark buildings in the city with the Einhardbasilika and the Steinheimer Torturm. Built in 1938, it stretches from the sole to the top of its "Pickelhaube" at exactly 51.70 meters. Alone by its white paint the original high water tank acts as a widely visible landmark in the landscape of the East. Behind the massive wall, almost one meter thick, a water tank with a volume of 500 cubic meters was installed, which provided the necessary pressure in the drinking water network. The construction costs amounted to 71,000 years 120,000 Reichsmark. Under the dome there are now half a dozen aerial installations for the fire brigades, civil protection and other emergency services, as well as mobile network operators. In addition, the bird protectors have installed nesting boxes for the kestrels up there.
The tower is currently no longer in operation as a monument and otherwise serves occasional visits ...op-online.de/region/seligenstadt/kulturdenkmal-dient-nistplatz-597265.html
