Address: Spesbacher Strasse, 66877 Ramstein-Miesenbach

The Ramstein Water Tower is located next to the road towards Spesbach. The tower has a height of 33 meters and was erected in 1955. Visible for miles around it became the landmark of Ramstein. At nighttime the building is even showcased. When it is getting dark the Ramstein Water Tower is illuminated in eight changing colors. This is made possible by twelve LED spotlights that were installed by the Stadtwerke Ramstein-Miesenbach, the public utility company. A specialist company from Neunkirchen arranged the programming and fine tuning. Enjoy this play of colors while driving by or stop over to take some pictures!
