LIVING IN A BELGIAN WATER TOWER
Located in Steenokkerzeel, Belgium, a city northeast of Brussels, this water tower built in 1941 sits on a small lot measuring 52.5 feet by 65.6 feet. The Nazis used it during World War II as a watchtower and then it was a functioning water tower until the 1990s. In 2005 the “Chateau d’eau from Steenokerzeel,” as it’s known, became a protected landmark.
