Viljandi vana veetorn (Viljandi Old Water Tower)

The 30m high red brick water tower was constructed in 1911 and was preserved until today with its small windows and the octangular wooden upper part.
The tower was actively used for about 50 years. After a long time of emptiness the building was renovated in 2001 as an observation tower. You are welcome to visit and enjoy the beautiful view over the lake and Old Town of Viljandi! Interesting to know: ·Viljandi was one of the first towns in Estonia to receive water works and canalisation. ·The three storeys of the tower accommodate one permanent and several travelling exhibitions. The water tower is an important part of the skyline of Viljandi as a so called town of towers.
