“Nice tower although maybe not worth 4€”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The Wasserturm is a very nice tower, but don't expect much more from it. My rating would have been higher if the price was lower. I don't feel like 4€ are justified for an elevator ride to a roof of a tower, even if you can see Lüneburg from the top. The information about water that you can see going down the stairs, is a pain to read since there is such a dim lightning.

Don't get me wrong, the tower is really beautiful, taken care of, and a nice place to visit, but next time I go to Lüneburg I will not do it again, unless they put a more reasonable price to it.

“Best View in the City”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I spent a week in Luneburg earlier this year, and absolutely loved it. The Wasserturm was easily in walking distance from my hotel, Der Bremer Hof, and was definitely worth the visit. The view is fabulous! As the other reviewers have mentioned, you take an elevator to the top, and then walk down, enjoying the information about the tower. I strongly recommend a visit as part of your tour of beautiful Luneburg!

“Fantastic View Over the City of Lüneburg”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Lüneburg is a gem of a city. From the Wasserturm, you get a fabulous view over the red roofs of the city and the countryside around the city. An elevator takes you to the top where you first enjoy the view. Then you can take the steps downwards to the different floors and learn information about the tower itself and history of the city.

“4 euros for a great experience!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

This place is ridiculously good value for something to do. The view of beautiful Luneburg is unmatchable and the displays on the way up are very interesting. The place is nicely maintained and the service is good. Worth the 4 euros.

“Best view”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

The water tower in Luneburg is the best place to enjoy the view of this Medieval city. Make sure you take your camera with you and a practical tip for ladies: beware of the wind - if it's windy your hair will be all over the place so it may be a good idea to tie it or take a hat.
