Vandtårnet – The Water Tower

Vandtårnet, the yellow water tower, was built in 1908. It is 43 meters high, there are 7 floors and 147 steps, and the viewing platform is at 32 meters altitude, offering the best view of Nykøbing Falster. At the time of its construction, it was Denmark’s first iron concrete building of that size ! It is located at Hollands Gård 30, very close to the main pedestrian street.

In 2008, the school MultiCenter Syd renovated the water tower, in order to modernize it and transform it into a café and an art gallery. While children make drawings in the corner, you can have a warm coffee and a piece of freshly baked-cake or a homemade sandwich.
