Kids loved this as a quick visit and enjoyed throwing the rocks and hearing the echo. Worth the time and the surrounding area is nice for a visit

This is some fun for kids, but there is not much close by. It's located next to the bus stop Vattentornet in Teleborg, just south of the Linne University. (56.844355, 14.824694). Worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood ...

It´s not a must but could be an experience with children. OK, adults aloud. The geometry is there to support the weight but it also do fascinating things to sound.

This is really fun for children, but that's about it. Not much here for adults. There is a number of nature trails attached here so these were fun to walk on.

It's a nice walk from the University to the water tower. It's really a unique place and fun to play around there. Try throwing stones around and play with the different noises.

As I live in Vaxjo, I have been here quite a few times. Last time was with my 2 year-old, he didn't want to leave.

The Echo water tower is the must see in Växjö! In the suburb area Teleborg there´s a water tower with the purpose to deliver water to the city. However the construction brings a very funny sound effect - it reflects sounds in very interesting way. So bring your friends, family and go to the Echo Water tower and scream, shout... More
