Fodor's Review

What used to be Europe's tallest water tower is now an independent, 11-story luxury hotel that's welcomed guests like Brad Pitt and fashion mogul Wolfgang Joop. The neoclassical look of the 140-year-old brick exterior remains, while the interior is modern and sedately restful. Visitors to the restaurant "Himmel un Äd" will find creative and modern European cuisine, plus a wraparound balcony with an expansive view of the city. For lighter fare, the hotel runs the bizarrely named d/\blju 'W' on the ground floor. The only thing left to be desired is a huge pool, but swim fanatics can head to the Agrippabad, next door.
