“Since 1983, the Weltkugelbrunnen or World Fountain has provided a refreshing addition to the City West district and forms the centre of a sunken square along the south-east edge of the Breitscheidplatz directly in front of the Europa Center. It is a popular meeting place for Berlin's many street artists and entertainers including acrobats and pantomime actors to portrait artists.”

Every time I have been there this has been engulfed by Christmas market chalets... Nice to see it photographed!
