De Watertoren

On the border of city and countryside, here you will find a moment of relaxation and pampering. Whether in the cosy polder café, on the sheltered terrace, in one of the beautiful hotel rooms or in the polder room. At De Watertoren Hotel & Restaurant, you will enjoy fresh, pure and honest food. Organic, seasonal and/or regional products are used as much as possible. The menu changes regularly because of this. Come and enjoy in the atmospheric restaurant or on the terrace with a unique view of the polders. De Watertoren welcomes you!

History Buitenlust water tower
This entirely concrete water tower on the edge of the Dubbeldam neighbourhood was built in 1916 to a design by Visser and Smit in Papendrecht. The hexagonal tent roof was originally finished with a plaster in sandstone colour by adding ground sandstone. The water tower is 36.40 metres high and has a water tank of 200 m3. The tower has a spiral staircase of 112 steps on the outside, leading to the viewing platform. The water tower has not been used for this purpose since 1973. After that, the tower served as a transmission tower for some time. 

  • Year built: 1916
