Lüneburg Water Tower (German: Wasserturm Lüneburg) is a water tower in the southeastern part of the Lüneburg old town in Lower Saxony, Germany. The erection of the water tower was initiated on 3 October 1905, after drawings by the architect Franz Krüger (1873–1936), and was taken into use 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, and it stand between the considerably newer Nordlandhalle and the Johanneum, the latter now functioning as a school. The building 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.
