  • This awe inspiring tower is just awesome to view. It is winter so thing we're closed off and no fountains were on. Still a great area to walk around and take in the sites. We will visit again in warmer weather and hope everything is back and working.
  • The most beautiful water tower I have seen and a popular landmark of Mannheim! It was the first place I visited during my tour of the city and I left with mixed feelings. The tower itself is stunning, huge and beautifully decorated in art nouveau style, however when I looked closer I saw a lot of rubbish lying around, engravings and graffiti on the railing/walls and trash in the water fountains located on the side of the building - I guess that's what you can expect on public place with free entry. Apart from the little walkway around the tower's base (it is inaccessible during the nights) and admiration of statues at the front ledge, there is nothing much to do, you are not permitted to visit inside the tower. I must say I enjoyed the park surrounding the tower a lot, it was very colorful as the flowers were in full bloom, grass was super green and well maintained, there were many benches to sit on and relax, and plenty of shade from big trees. Only the small front fountain was working, the main rear fountain was fenced and closed for renovation, quite a misfortunate. As Wasserturm is located centrally, there are plenty of shops and stores nearby. It was not busy at all during Sunday mid day. Definitely a place not to be missed while in Mannheim! Visited in June 2022.
