Description

By the beginning of the 20th century Siófok became one of Lake Balaton’s most preferred holiday resorts. The development required the construction of modern water and sewerage system. Installation works of plumbing system started in spring 1912, and the process was regularly reported by the press. The 45 m high reinforced concrete structure Water Tower built parallel with the plumbing was designed by the architects Árpád Guth and Jenő Gergely. The Water Tower was damaged during the Second World War and was restaured by spring 1945. In 1973 the Water Tower in the city centre was taken out of the water supply system due to the modernisation of the water system. In 1992 the local government took ownership of the Water Tower and the first rural tourist information office Tourinform in the Tower opened in the same year. The Tower’s complete renovation started in 2012. Tourinform’s renewed office ceremonial handover was taken on 10th February 2012. A panorama-café bar and an interactive showroom are at the place of the former water tank. The renewed 101-year-old Water Tower welcomes its guests in Siófok city centre.
