Mosebacke vattentorn, Stockholm

Architect: Ferdinand Boberg

Built in: 1895-1896



Mosebacke water tower, now Mosebacke pumping station, is a water supply plant in Stockholm. The Water tower at Mosebacke, completed in 1896, was intended to give a higher water pressure to higher buildings than the general low-pressure network. The tower is 32 meters high and has a water tank, which can hold 104 cubic meters of water.


The Facades and the tower plans were designed by architect Ferdinand Boberg.


The Water Tower reservoir was abandoned in 1960 and today the facility only operates as a pumping station while the tower has been converted into private homes.
