As Cologne grew into the industrial powerhouse that it is today, the requirement for an underground water main to feed the growing city’s needs meant that this 35m high, 19th Century watertower, was no longer required.
Standing derelict for many years, it took the genius of French interior designer Andree Putman and the courage of a team of investors to turn what used to be Europe`s largest water tower, into the amazing 5 star hotel.
This one-of-a-kind experience remains one of the most architecturally stunning hotels in Germany. Classified as a heritage site, you will find an extraordinary interior design of timeless modernity behind its 140 year-old walls.
What was once the biggest water tower in Europe is now a hotel with an exceptional interior and a timeless modern design. Nestling in a quiet residential area, and yet close to the lively centre of the city of Cologne.
Prepare yourself for an exceptional stay in the city with its iconic cathedral on the river Rhine. The historic Wasserturm is more than just a building, it's an experience. Built 140 years ago, partially destroyed during the second world war and rebuilt in the 1990s, the tower is a now listed building which offers incomparable views.
At a height of 35 metres you will find our 360° Panorama Roof Terrace, which offers incomparable views of the landmarks of Cologne, including the mighty cathedral, the hills of the Siebengebirge and the Drachenfels
