Eber's Water Towers: Switzerland

by Eber Ohlsson

Cirkulation 5/2005

Wasserturm = water tower.

A free translation to English:


In the water tower in the district Bruderholz of the Swiss city Basel wind the up and the down-staircase along the inner walls as two screw spirals. The 35 meter high tower in Art Deco-style from 1926, drawn by the architect Emil Vischer, got 2001 a lighter tint than the photo from 1984.

There are reservoirs of 500 m³ under the tower for a lower zone, and a reservoir of 320 m³ under the belvedere for a higher zone. To pass the entrance gate of the tower a less fee must be put down in a collection box. In the nearby Café Wasserturm was it possible at least in former time to enjoy of water that has passed coffee beans or tea leaf.
