Eber's Water Towers: Austria

by Eber Ohlsson

Cirkulation 2/2003

A free translation to English:

With a total height of 67 meter is the water tower in the district Favoriten in Vienna among the highest in Europe, high seeing that it’s only 33 meter up to the water mirror. The tower, built 1898/99, has got a shape worthy the parade streets in the centre of Vienna. Under the roof of glazed tiles in five colours is a 203 meter long spiral ramp leading up to reservoirs on 1 050 m³ respective 203 m³.

When Vienna 1910 got a new water main from the mountains, was the meaning of the tower reduced and was out of operation 1956. For some years ago was it completely renovated and is now a historic building and sometimes open to art exhibitions.
