EXCLUSIVE, UNIQUE, WORTH A VISIT
Situated in the centre of the cathedral city and in the heart of a quiet residential area, the major attractions of Cologne - a city of more than one million inhabitants - are within easy reach. The Koelnmesse trade fair and exhibition centre is just four stops away on the underground system (U-Bahn), and Cologne-Bonn Airport is only 15 km away. Neumarkt and the shopping areas are just a 10 minute walk away and the historic Altstadt (old town) with the Rhine Promenade are only a 15 minute walk away. Discover the unique location of the Hotel im Wasserturm: Take a few steps outside and you're at the heart of all the action – take a step back and you're relaxing in the comfort of the hotel.
Once the biggest water tower in Europe, behind the brickwork, some of which is more than 140 years old, is an exceptional interior with a timeless modern design. The three upper floors of the Wasserturm were destroyed in the second world war and only opened again in 1990 after a four year period of reconstruction. In the nearby town of Frechen, 300,000 new bricks were fired for the new walls.
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. If you book a private party in the Private Dining Room you will enjoy wrap-around views from one of the best prospects in Cologne.
