Vienna Water School

The Vienna Water School is a unique, eco-educational institution operated by the Vienna Water Department (MA 31). At the water school, school pupils learn in a playful and interactive way, receiving plenty of interesting facts about one of our most-precious resources, water. The aim is to make children and young people appreciate the value of the increasingly-endangered resource and learn how to deal with it in an eco-friendly way, to save and preserve it.
The Vienna Water School also gives children answers to questions, like: How does the water cycle work in nature? Where does Vienna´s high quality of water come from? Where and how do they clean it? What´s the water cycle in Vienna like?
The offer of the Vienna Water School is designed for school groups and suitable for children and young people aged 8 to 15 years. Typically, a water workshop lasts from 9am to 1pm. It can be booked on any school day Monday to Friday. The workshops are free of charge for all children as part of Vienna´s EULE eco-educational project. The school was open in 2005.
The Vienna Water School is found in the former drinking water power station (Wasserleitungskraftwerk) of Wienerberg in Vienna´s 10th district of Favoriten. The school is situated in the immediate vicinity of the Wasserturm, a former water supply tower that is one of the district´s landmarks as well as one of the most-beautiful historical industrial buildings in Vienna. Having said that, the Water tower is normally closed to the public, but will be open for pupils for a visit as part of the water workshop.
Nearby, there´s also the Wasserturm Water Playground which can be used for free during the summer season.
