This water tower in Wels was built in 1577/1579 by Wolfgang Khranlachner. Watchmaker Clement Rench designed the water pump inside the tower. Artist Niclas Linkh created the colourful façade painting.
In the upper part, I saw an educative detail. A row of coats of arms mentions all countries ruled by the House of Habsburg.
