9. Water Tower
Built in 1893
As imitation of a fortified tower it was
built of quarry stones and bricks.
The tower offers a superb view
across the Maifeld.
Erected in 1893, the water tower put an end to the toil of the daily walks to the well in Münstermaifeld. The architecture is reminiscent of a fortified medieval tower. Here, the water tower represents the city’s transition to modern times. This was followed by the connection to the electricity grid, the telephone and railway network by 1916. A view from the water tower confirms the dominating position of the city in Maifeld.
