Great value for money (it's free!)

This water tower has a parking of its own that I guess never is full. The echo effect is spectacular and this place is worth visiting when you are in Växjö.

A very high "eco-rate" and not like the siple one you experince in a tunnel, but more fun for kids than grown up. Nice to see if you are close but dont have this as the only goal for your trip.

The water tower is in green area. Amazing sounds and echoes. Sadly children throw stones... a place for families and music lovers.

This has some serious echo but it can get a little scary standing under it as it is huge and it can be a little intimidating

The water tower is known for its echo and it's fun to take kids here to sing och shout 😆.You can get here by bus fem the town center.It takes only 10 minutes. It's a putty the town didn't make the top accessible for a great view of the town. What were they thinking ??? 😢

This is some fun for kids, but there is not much close by. It's located next to the bus stop Vattentornet in Teleborg, just south of the Linne University. (56.844355, 14.824694). Worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood ...

It´s not a must but could be an experience with children. OK, adults aloud. The geometry is there to support the weight but it also do fascinating things to sound. All will experience the sound in focus but dont forget to go outside and listen to the other side of the coin. It is close to city and 15 minutes... More

This is really fun for children, but that's about it. Not much here for adults. There is a number of nature trails attached here so these were fun to walk on.

It's a nice walk from the University to the water tower. It's really a unique place and fun to play around there. Try throwing stones around and play with the different noises.
