4.6
Lüneburg Water Tower (German: Wasserturm Lüneburg) is a water tower in the southeastern part of the Lüneburg old town in Lower Saxony, Germany, designed by the architect Franz Krüger (1873–1936). Its erection was initiated on 3 October 1905, and the tower was taken into use in November 1907.

The water tower is 55 metres (180 ft) tall, and is the tallest building in the Lüneburg old town that is not a church. It stands between the considerably newer Nordlandhalle and the Johanneum, the latter now used as a school. The tower consists of a square base of 18 metres (59 ft) and a round portion which is walled up around a 500 cubic metres (18,000 cu ft) large water tank. The upper part is carried by 16 solid columns.
