Altes Wasserwerk (Old waterworks)

As a station on the Industrial Culture Route, the waterworks give visitors a comprehensive overview of water supply for the city of Wesel from 1886 to 1956.

The old waterworks gives a comprehensive overview of the water supply for the city of Wesel from 1886 to 1956. The pumps of the waterworks were initially operated with steam power, with electrical energy starting in 1924. The construction and mechanical facilities that were operated until 1956 can still be toured today, including a dug well (1886), a two-cylinder steam pump machine (1903), electric circulation pump with starter controlled by water pressure (1924), etc. A drinking water learning path was set up in the old waterworks as a special attraction. This shows the path of water from the well to the customer, the water supply technology and the "hidden" values under the surface of the ground.
