“Lovingly known by the locals as the Wasserklops or water ball, this hemispherical fountain made of red granite and bronze captivates onlookers with its figures, stairs, geometric shapes and carvings, especially when the water is allowed to flow over it and collect in the basin at its foot.”
(World Fountain, Europa Center, Berlin)
