Steel water tower at the Anhalter railway depot

Barely a quarter of a century after constructing the Anhalter Bahn railway depot, the water reservoir was no longer sufficient to supply the larger and more powerful steam locomotives. That is why a completely new water tower was erected in 1908.

The water tower was built by August Klönne, a construction company located in the Ruhr area and focused on constructing steel structures, including bridges and water towers. Unlike other examples in the Berlin cityscape, no bricks were used in this water tower. It is made entirely of steel and the spherical water tank is not hidden from view by a wall.

The water tower is 35 meters high and its spherical tub has a capacity of 300 cubic meters of water. It is protected as a monument.
