We were heading to the fantastic Europa Centre to go to the fantastic Irish Pub and also Baverium which is another superb pub when we came across this oddity of a fountain. On a roasting hot day the water feature looked very cooling and it's certainly popular with kids who really enjoyed the the odd little fountain with its little... More

Weltkugelbrunnen or World Fountain was built in 1993 in front of the Europa Center. The Berliners have nicknamed it Wasserklops or water ball because this fountain is a semi circular red granite structure. The metal figures, shapes, stairs and animals on it never fail to amuse the onlookers. The pedestrianized Breitscheidplatz is a popular meeting place. It is also the... More

If you're already on the Kurfürstendamm (" Ku'damm), stop and enjoy this fun sculpture next to the Europa Center. The water flows around and down in an attractive fashion, and the metal sculptures jump out oddly. The more we walked around it, the more we enjoyed it.

This slightly ugly brown dome sits in the plaza between Kaiser Wilhelm Church and the Europa Centre. Locally called the Wasserklops or Water Ball it is a popular meeting spot and hang out for street artists and performers. Around the fountain has an odd selection of sculptures, a welder, someone sunbathing and a number of animals. It was built in... More

This fountain provided welcomed relief on a 95 degree day. We found it to be a perfect place to stop, cool off, and watch the extremely interesting array of people passing by. Give it a try!

I loved this fountain we sat down to watch the fountain, eat a sausage, and watch the people go. There were also street performers all around and it was very entertaining.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
