    Landmark of Niederlehme is the 1902 built water tower. It is clearly visible on the A10 motorway.
    Niederlehme is a historically grown commercial and industrial site: Already 100 years ago sand-lime bricks were produced in Niederlehme. This makes Niederlehme one of the oldest production sites of limestone in Germany. Every second wall brick built in Berlin is a limestone.
    But Niederlehme is also a popular destination and has the largest allotment area in Germany on an area of ​​around 60 hectares.

    The locals say that someone bought the water tower to live in, but apparently did not get a building permit. However, I imagine it to me living right next to the highway not very nice

    Very old and probably unused, too bad.

    Great Campanile, which you often see from the highway - there you should go in "real" way

    In order to “show the whole world that the limestone blocks formed in Niederlehme (…) can withstand some loads”, Robert Guthmann had a water tower made of sandstone blocks. The tower was completed in 1902, modeled on the Istanbul Galata Tower, a Christ tower from 1348/1349. The tower is 27 meters high and 8.50 meters thick. Although it has a narrow viewing gallery, it was never open to the public. Only since the establishment of the Water Tower Festival in 2007 has the building been open for inspection once a year.

    For a long time I only knew the tower from driving past the A10. For us it was always called "the leaning tower of Niederlehme" because it looks slightly crooked. Now I have also cycled past it on the Dahme cycle path and now know that it is an old water tower and is the symbol of Niederlehme.
