Trust me, it is NOT a watertower

It does look very weird. For some reason I thought it was a water tower. It is in the town of Oberreid in the Black Forest area in Southern Germany, near Freiburg. But ... it is in fact a defense against against nuclear weapons and natural disasters...

It is called Barbarastollen. Right behind it is an old mine, archiving Germany's cultural heritage and safeguarded for natural and man-made disasters, 400 meters underground. For more information, refer to the Google Maps page and this article. The archive is described also in a Wikipedia article here.
