The water tower of Svampen (the Mushroom), was inaugurated in May 1958, and ever since has been one of the most popular visitor attractions in Örebro. Over the years it has given some 8 million people the opportunity to see Örebro from on high. Perhaps, indeed, it is the most frequently visited water tower in the world! Nowadays you will find a conference area and Café Nova with its marvellous views at Svampen. And of course the inhabitants of Örebro still obtain their drinking water from the big Svampen reservoir.
