Once threatened with ruin, the ancient water tower in Cologne has now been ingeniously recycled. The results? A prestigious hotel perfectly integrated with the exceptional architecture of the building.
A setting with a unique cachet
The transformation of the water tower with its 130-year-old walls has scrupulously respected the unique character of the building which has historic monument classification. Tremendous ingenuity has been employed to highlight the spirit of the place and to overcome architectural limitations (porthole shaped windows, tower-style structure, etc). In the lobby, on the panoramic “balconies” accessible from different floors and in the labyrinthine corridors leading to the “maisonette” bedrooms”, you almost feel as though you have been transported to the heart of a fortress.
In all the rooms, the arrangements of colours and shapes are a reminder of the initial purpose of the water tower. The modern and functional im Wasserturm offers spacious rooms from 35 m², conference rooms, gym, beauty salon, lounge bar and an innovative gastronomic concept. There are two restaurants offering complementary menus: La Vision, a Michelin starred restaurant with a panoramic view on the 11th floor, and Le d/\blju 'W', a restaurant with a contemporary approach on the ground floor.
Far from having had its day, the water tower has reinvented itself without losing any of its uniqueness.

I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
